What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national funding scheme by the Australian government that is designed to help individuals under the age of 65 with a permanent disability. The scheme entitles eligible participants to receive funding for reasonable and necessary supports related to their disability. For more information, please see: https://www.ndis.gov.au/
Do you see clients under NDIS?
Yes, I can see clients who have 'self-managed funding' or 'plan-managed funding'.
Participants who are self-managed pay for services upfront and then claim the funds back from NDIS. Participants who are plan-managed have a plan nominee who pays directly to the service provider and claims back the funds from NDIS on the participant's behalf. For more information regarding NDIS pricing, please see: https://www.ndis.gov.au/providers/price-guides-and-pricing.
Please note: I do NOT see clients who have 'NDIA-managed funding'.

Assessments (if applicable)
Which age ranges do you see?
