What is the NDIS? And how does it affect me?
If you want the details about the NDIS, read on . . .
As you have no doubt heard, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national insurance scheme and a completely new way of supporting people who are living with a permanent disability. The NDIS is changing the way that disability services are delivered. With NDIS, you are able to choose your services and how you want them delivered.
At the moment the NDIS is coming into Victoria progressively. In other words not everyone in the state is covered yet. It is expected to be state-wide by July 2019.
What’s it mean in practice?
Well, because the NDIS is coming in progressively, people who are currently receiving support through the Commonwealth and State governments will be changing over to the NDIS at varying times. The timing will depend on the sort of support you are receiving and where you live.
