What is NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is also called the NDIS
The NDIS is a new way for people with disability to get the care and supports they need to live a better life
The NDIS recognises that everyone is different and gives people with disability choice and flexibility
This means you can choose who provides that support. For example, you may not be happy with the service provider you use. The NDIS will make it easier for you to change service providers and make sure you are getting the support you need
If you are happy with the support you are getting, there is no reason to change. The NDIS will not take that help away
What support can I get from the NDIS?
The life of each person with a disability is different, so the support will be different for everybody.
The NDIS will fund reasonable and necessary supports. ‘Reasonable’ support is one that is fair and represents good value for money. ‘Necessary’ support is one which you must have to live your life independently.
The NDIS pays for different supports for different people depending on their goals. Two people with similar impairments may have very different NDIS plans because their personal goals may not be the same.
