What is an NDIS plan?

An NDIS plan is a bespoke document that clearly states the support and services that someone receives through the NDIS. It is developed in collaboration with eligible participants their family or support network, and someone who represents the NDIA. A plan typically includes the participant's goals, aspirations, and support needs, and how certain supports will be used to help them meet those goals and needs.

NDIS plans typically undergo regular reviews and adjustments, to make sure they stay relevant to the participant’s needs, as they change. It’s essentially a roadmap for accessing a range of supports – such as personal care, shopping assistance, assistive technology, allied health therapies, nursing support, home modifications or support at school – to encourage independence, wellbeing, and participation in the community.

What is the process for getting an NDIS plan?

To access NDIS services providers in Ballarat, you’ll need to apply for an NDIS plan, which is designed to support people with disability in the community. To do so, here are the steps you can follow:

  •  Check your eligibility. Before applying, make sure you meet the eligibility criteria for the NDIS on the website. Generally speaking, you should be under 65 years old, and have a permanent and significant disability that affects your ability to do daily tasks.
  •  Contact the NDIA. You can call the National Disability Insurance Agency by calling 1800 800 110 or getting in touch on their website. On the phone, a staff member will guide you through the process and provide information about what you need. This includes providing you with an Access Request form, which is also available on the NDIS website. An access f collects details about your disability and how it impacts your life. You can also get help from a family member, friend, or a support person to fill it out.
  •  Gather Information: when you submit your Access Request form, you’ll also need to provide supporting documents that provide evidence about your disability and its impact on daily life. This may include medical reports, assessments, or statements from healthcare professionals.
  •  Submit the Form. complete the Access Request Form and send it back to the NDIS, along with all necessary documents. If your access request is approved, the NDIS will contact you to schedule a planning meeting and start putting together your NDIS plan.

What is an NDIS provider?

An NDIS provider is a person or organisation that has been approved by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to provide a disability-related service or product to NDIS participants. They play an important role by providing services in the community, so people with disability have choice and control over how they are supported. Providers must meet the NDIS Practice Standards to be able to offer their services. This is a set of guidelines and expectations that ensure the quality and safety of the support delivered to people with disability.

Some examples of NDIS providers include allied health professionals, housing providers, mental health services, support workers, and transport services.

What is an NDIS case manager?

An NDIS case manager is a disability professional who helps participants navigate and access the services and supports outlined in their NDIS plan. They work closely with participants, their families, and support networks to ensure that the approved plan aligns with the person’s unique needs and goals.

Case managers also serve as a point of contact between the NDIS participant and various service providers, helping coordinate the delivery of supports as outlined in the participant’s plans. They can also provide guidance and advocacy, to help people with disability know their rights, access resources that are available to them, and resolving any issues that may arise. This helps enhance the overall wellbeing and independence of the participant, and ensures their plan is effectively implemented as adapted as their needs change over time.

Who is eligible for the NDIS?

The NDIS is intended to support people who have a significant and permanent disability that impacts their ability to live a full life. To qualify for an NDIS plan, you will need to undergo an assessment process with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), to ensure you meet the criteria for funding. You might be eligible:

  • If you have a significant and permanent disability that significantly impacts your ability to perform daily tasks
  • If your disability is most likely to last over a lifetime, and require you to access long-term support for daily living
  • You are younger than 65 years old (if you are 65 or over, you might be eligible for government-subsidised aged care services instead of the NDIS)
  • If you are a citizen of Australia, a permanent resident, or have a Protected Special Category Visa

As an NDIS approved provider in Ballarat, Home Caring can help you apply for NDIS funding and provide all the information you need. We’ll answer any questions you have, and explain the process to you or your family member. To learn more about NDIS personal care in Ballarat, please get in touch with our customer service team.

Can I choose my own NDIS service provider?

The NDIS is focused on providing people living with disability genuine choice and control over the people and services that support them. This means that NDIS participants are free to choose your own service providers, and they can change their providers at any time if they wish. This includes a wide range of different disability services and workers, such as case managers, registered nurses, allied health professionals, community activities, accommodation services, transports services and much more.

To choose an NDIS provider that best suits your needs, it’s a good idea to start by looking at your own needs, preferences and personal goals, as outlined in your NDIS plan. Work out what support you really need, and look for providers who might best fit that need. You can find organisations in your area by searching the NDIS website, or by getting recommendations from healthcare professionals, family, or friends.

Does the NDIS include disability housing?

Yes, the NDIS can include support for accessible housing and short term accommodation. If you need help with housing due to your disability, your NDIS plan can cover things like home modifications, assistive technology, medium term accommodation, or even funding for long-term supported accommodation.

Home modifications might include things like ramps, wider doorways, accessible kitchens, assistive technology, or bathroom changes to make your home more accessible. If you require more comprehensive support, your NDIS plan could provide funding to cover the costs of living in a place that offers additional accessibility based on your individual needs (This is called Specialist Disability Accommodation). The NDIS can also fund short term and medium term accommodation, if you need somewhere accessible to stay for a short period of time, or while you are transitioning between homes.

It's important to discuss your housing requirements during the NDIS planning process so that your plan can be tailored to address your specific housing needs. Your NDIS planner or case manager will work with you to understand the type of housing support required, and they will include this in your personalised plan. Keep in mind that the NDIS aims to provide flexibility, so if your housing needs change over time, you can discuss adjustments during your plan reviews to ensure that your support remains in line with your evolving circumstances.

They can offer guidance and assistance throughout the process.

What is an NDIS service agreement?

Under the NDIS, a service agreement is a formal agreement or contract between an NDIS participant and their chosen disability support provider. This contract clearly outlines the terms and conditions of the supports that the provider will deliver to the participant. It serves as a mutual understanding between the participant and the service provider, to ensure there is clarity and transparency about the disability services that will be delivered.

An NDIS service agreement typically includes:

  • details about the participant and service provider that will be providing support
  • a detailed description of the different supports and services that will be provided to the participant
  • a schedule that lays out the frequency, duration, and location of the services
  • the specific NDIS goals and outcomes that are covered by the services
  • how complaints and disputes will be handled if they occur
  • details about the costs associated with the services, including any fees, charges, or billing arrangements
  • the rights and responsibilities of both the participant and the service provider.
