Yes, it is possible to transfer your NDIS funding to a different service provider. The first step is to terminate your current service provider’s agreement in writing, before starting with a new service provider.
While involving family members in the development of an NDIS plan is not mandatory, it is highly recommended. It can provide valuable information, emotional support, and advocacy for the participant, which can lead to a better quality of life. However, the final decision on involving family members rests with the participant.
Yes, it is advisable to create a plan beforehand when scheduling a meeting with NDIS providers. Having a plan in place can help you make the most of your meeting and ensure that your needs and goals are accurately reflected in the support and services provided by the NDIS.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) offers three ways to manage NDIS funds: self-managed, plan-managed, and NDIA-managed. In self-management, the participant is responsible for managing their own NDIS funds. In plan management, a provider supports the participant to manage funding in their NDIS plan. In NDIA management, the financial administration of the participant’s plan is managed by the NDIA. Participants can choose a combination of these three options as well
Certain types of support cannot be funded or provided under the NDIS, such as day-to-day living costs that are not attributable to your disability support needs and supports that are likely to cause harm to you or others. The NDIS is designed to be flexible and individualised, so some participants may need to contribute some of their funds towards certain supports.
Yes, the NDIS imposes cost limitations on the services it funds to ensure effective and efficient use of funding. Maximum prices for each support are determined by NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits.

The NDIS provides funding for various types of assistance to support people with disabilities in their daily lives. These supports can be broadly categorised into three categories:

Core supports: These are supports that help participants with their everyday activities, including personal care, household tasks, and community access. Examples of core supports include assistance with showering, getting dressed, preparing meals, and participating in social activities.

Capital supports: These are supports that help participants purchase or maintain equipment, technology, or home modifications that will improve their quality of life. Examples of capital supports include wheelchairs, hearing aids, vehicle modifications, and home modifications.

Capacity-building supports: These are supports that help participants develop their skills and independence so that they can participate more fully in their community. Examples of capacity-building supports include training and education, support to find and maintain employment and support to develop social and communication skills.

No, if you are above 65 years of age, you are not eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS has an age requirement and to be eligible for the NDIS, you must be under 65 years of age at the time of application

If your NDIS application gets rejected, it is not possible to receive services under the NDIS scheme. However, there are other government programs and services that you may be eligible for.
