How does the NDIS work?

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a government program in Australia intended to provide funding for supports for individuals who live with a significant and permanent disability. Those who qualify as NDIS participants are granted funding by the government to gain access to a range of support services catered to their individual needs. These services can include domestic assistance, clinical care, behaviour support, skills training, transport and 24/7 support. The aim of these supports is to enable individuals to lead a more independent life within their local community.

At the core of the NDIS is choice and control for people living with disability. This person-centred approach puts you in charge of selecting your supports, as well as who delivers them. Once you've chosen your NDIS provider, you’ll establish a service agreement and work with them to develop a personalised plan that outlines your supports, according to your needs and goals.

What makes you eligible for NDIS funding?

You might be eligible for the NDIS if you have a disability that significantly impacts your ability to carry out everyday tasks and participate in community life. You must be:

  • be an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or hold a Protected Special Category Visa
  • be younger than 65 years old at the time of your application
  • have a permanent and significant disability or impairment that substantially affects your ability to undertake everyday activities
  • Need support from the NDIS to reduce the impact of your disability and enables you to achieve your goals

To determine your eligibility, NDIS assessors use evidence such as medical reports, functional assessments from healthcare professionals, and information from other service providers. If a person is found to be eligible for NDIS funding, they will meet with a NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator to develop a support plan in line with their goals.

What’s the process of applying for NDIS funding in Australia?

If you think you may be eligible for NDIS funding but aren’t sure where to start, here are some basic steps to guide you through the process of applying for funding.

  • To determine your eligibility for NDIS funding, start by completing the checklist available on the website. This brief questionnaire is a simple and efficient method for evaluating whether you meet the criteria for NDIS funding.
  • If you think you or your loved one might meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for NDIS funding in two ways. The first is by making a verbal application over the phone by calling the NDIA on 1800 800 110. Alternatively, you can complete an Access Request form online, which will require you to provide identity confirmation, consent to collect your information, and your contact details. If necessary, you can also authorise someone to apply for the NDIS on your behalf.
  • As part of your application, you will need to provide proof of your Australian citizenship or permanent residency, your age, and details about your disability. Your treating healthcare professional – who can be a GP, paediatrician, occupational therapist, psychiatrist, psychologist, speech pathologist, or neurologist – will also be required to provide adequate evidence of your disability. This evidence should comprise of your diagnosis, its impact on your daily life, details of past and future treatments, and anticipated outcomes.
  • After submitting your application, the NDIA will review it to determine your eligibility for NDIS support services. If you are deemed ineligible, you can reapply in three months' time, as a degenerative disability or recently acquired traumatic injury can cause changes in your functional abilities over time.
  • The next step is looking for NDIS registered providers on the Central Coast. There are many options available, and each provider offers different services, fees and approaches to care.

What if I’m not eligible for the NDIS?

The NDIS is designed to support people with disability in the community, but there may be instances when a person is not eligible for support. If you are in this situation, here are some options that may be available to you.

  • Explore other options – the NDIS website has many supports and services provided the Government and community sector. This may be applicable to you, if you are not eligible for the NDIS. This includes services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, advocacy services, crisis support centres, CALD supports, education and employment assistance, and housing supports.
  • Contact your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) – even if you are not eligible for the NDIS, they may be able to connect you with other supports in your community that can help.
  • Pay privately – you can still book a support worker and pay privately for their services. Many providers offer affordable support that can help you with everyday tasks.
  • Review the decision – all eligibility decisions by the NDIA can be challenged through a review. If your application has been rejected, you can request a review of that decision.

How do I choose a NDIS provider on the Central Coast?

Choosing the right NDIS provider is crucial to ensuring you receive the supports that you truly need. Here are some tips that can help you make a decision you’re happy with

  • Consider what types of services you need, what kind of support you want, and what your goals are. Your LAC or support coordinator will help you develop a support plan that clearly outlines what you require.
  • Once you have a clear idea of your needs and priorities, research NDIS providers that specialise in the services you require. Look for providers that have a track record of delivering high standard of care, have a good reputation in the community, and align with your values and preferences.
  • Chat to other people about who they would recommend – often your friends and family may be in touch with providers who they have had a positive experience with. You can also research providers in your area by using the online search tool on the NDIS website.
  • Write a list of questions to take with you when you meet with providers, so you can find out the information you need to make a decision. Also consider the expertise and experience of the staff members who will be delivering your care, and find out about their qualifications and training.
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions and seek feedback from other clients who have used their services. Ultimately, the right NDIS provider is one that you’re happy with! They should be able to help you achieve your goals and live a fulfilling life, while providing quality of care.

I’m not happy with my current provider. Can I switch to Home Caring?

Yes, absolutely. To switch providers to Home Caring, you will need to get in touch your current provider and let them know that you would like to switch, according to the process outlined in your service agreement (this could include giving a notice period before being able to make the switch). Our team is here to guide you through the process, if you need any help. Please contact us for assistance.

Under the NDIS, what is a service agreement?

When you start receiving services from a NDIS provider, you will both need to sign a legally binding document called a ‘service agreement’, which specifies the services that you will receive as a NDIS participant.

The service agreement guarantees that you receive the necessary services from your provider, while outlining the terms and conditions of your relationship with them. This typically includes details regarding the support services offered, the associated costs, and the duration of the agreement. Additionally, the agreement may outline cancellation policies, service delivery schedules, and any other terms and conditions that you have mutually agreed upon with your NDIS provider.

To give you control over your NDIS plan, it's crucial that any service agreement you sign has a transparent and concise explanation of the services they will provide, along with the expectations and obligations of both parties. Remember to review the agreement thoroughly before signing, since it is a binding legal contract with your NDIS provider. If you are unsure about anything, it's important to seek clarification so you know exactly what you are agreeing to.

What is a NDIS support coordinator?

Under the NDIS, a support coordinator helps you understand your plan, and implement your funded supports effectively. Here are some of the tasks they take care of:

  • Explaining the funded supports in your NDIS plan to you
  • Helping you choose NDIS care providers on the Central Coast
  • Negotiating with providers about what services they will provide and the cost
  • Ensuring your service agreements and bookings are completed correctly
  • Helping you prepare for your plan review
  • Making sure you are getting the most value out of your funded supports
