What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new method of supporting Australians with a permanent or significant disability, giving them the opportunity to build skills for everyday tasks or to re-join the workforce and engage with the community.

The NDIS aims to improve the outcomes of those with a disability later in life by investing in the initial stages of their journey to better health. About 460,000 Australians with a disability under 65 years old are expected to be part of the long-term disability care and support scheme.

As part of the NDIS, you’ll receive a tailored plan to ensure you receive the support you need and to help you identify and reach your goals, whether they be starting studies, securing a job, joining a social group or simply providing personal care to assist with everyday tasks.

NDIS Eligibility

In order to start receiving NDIS services you need to have your eligibility assessed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).  Please refer to the NDIS Eligibility Checklist – https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible


Your NDIS Plan

Once your plan is approved, you need to understand different budgets, who can help you start using your plan, and how your plan is managed.  Most NDIS participants will have a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to help to understand and use the plan. This includes showing participants how to use the portal and connecting them with funded supports. LACs support participants throughout their plans to monitor how the plan is going, and they can check progress regularly.

If LAC Partners are not available in your area, or you need more help coordinating your supports and services, the NDIA may fund a Support Coordinator in your NDIS plan. A Support Coordinator will help you use your plan to achieve your goals, live more independently, increase your skills and be included in your community and in employment.

NDIS Pricing

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) sets price controls for some supports included in participant plans to make sure they provide value for money for participants.  The NDIA will update price controls on at least an annual basis, effective 1 July each year, taking into account market trends, changes in costs and wage rates.  The price control means that service provider is unable to charge the support services more than the price set by NDIA.

Holistic Care SA is committed to the NDIS Price Guide for all the support services, all rates for the support services that we deliver are aligned with the NDIS Price Guide.  Holistic Care SA will only make adjustment to the pricing when the Annual Price Review is undertaken by the NDIA in the lead up to new financial year, with any new prices outlined in an updated price guide, effective 1 July each year.
