FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme; a scheme responsible to provide funding to eligible people with disability to gain greater capacity in various domains of their lives, including but not limited to work, independence, access to new skills, healthcare and education.
The NDIS is not designed to fund for any supports in which could be provided by the health system, Medicare, within Australia. If a medical expense can be subsidised by Medicare the NDIS may decline payment for that direct service. It is important when report writing or creation that clinicians are aware of the different health services in which are funded by the NDIS and which are not.
The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a developed scheme that supports the bettering of lives of those with disability noted as significant and permanent. The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Agency) is an independent statutory agency responsible for implementing this scheme Australia wide.
The NDIS funds a variety of supports and services which can include education, employment, social participation, independence, living arrangements and health & wellbeing. The service must be deemed reasonable and necessary and be related to a participants current symptoms or noted capacity as a result of their disability. To review all reasonable and necessary NDIS funded supports you can find out more information on the NDIS website itself here.
Services and supports for participants fall into three categories including Capacity Building, Capital and Core. Core is a support that helps a participant complete daily living activities. Typically therapists will not bill from this line item and will initial utilise Capacity building funds as capacity building is a support that helps a participant build their independence and skills – the primary role of allied health supports. Capital is a support for an investment, such as assistive technologies, equipment and home or vehicle modifications, or funding for accomodation.
