The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a major Australian Government initiative that helps people with disability access the support they need to live a fulfilling life. The scheme provides funding for approved medical and health-related expenses, such as therapy services, equipment and support services. But with so many different types of expenses covered, understanding which ones are eligible for funding can be a challenge. In this article, we'll provide an overview of the NDIS scheme, explain what types of medical and health-related expenses are eligible for funding and how to access them. We'll also look at how you can use the NDIS to get the most out of your medical and health-related expenses.
Accessing Approved Medical and Health-Related Expenses Through the NDIS SchemeIn order to access approved medical and health-related expenses through the NDIS scheme, you must first meet certain eligibility requirements.
You must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident, and you must have a permanent or significant disability that has a significant impact on your life. If you meet these criteria, you can then apply for access to the NDIS scheme. Once you have been approved for the NDIS scheme, you will need to create a plan with your NDIS planner. This plan will outline your goals and objectives for the next 12 months, as well as what types of supports you need to achieve these goals.
Your plan will also include details of the approved medical and health-related expenses that you can access through the NDIS scheme. It is important to note that not all approved medical and health-related expenses will be covered by the NDIS. Your NDIS planner will help you determine which expenses are eligible for funding. They will also provide advice on how to access additional support if needed.
