WHAT IS THE NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the way support is provided to Australians living with disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS provides reasonable and necessary supports for eligible people under 65 years of age with a permanent and significant disability. These supports are to help people with their day to day needs, as well as build capacity to achieve their goals in life whether at home, in the community or at work.
The NDIS is an insurance scheme so aims to support people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

What is the difference between NDIS and NDIA?
NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme.
It is a new national system of providing support to people with disability, their families and carers. It is focused on providing real choice and flexibility to people with disability, through the provision of personalised funding.
People with disability who are eligible take part in the scheme are called “participants”.
The NDIA is the National Disability Insurance Agency.
What type of supports will the NDIS cover?
The NDIS covers a wide range of disability supports, services and equipment, where these are seen as reasonable and necessary.
These can include therapies, education, living arrangements, home modifications, communication assistive technology, mobility equipment, community participation activities, and support in gaining and maintaining employment, just to name a few.
To say that a support is ‘reasonable and necessary’ means that it should help in one or more of the following ways:
Achieving your goals.
- Increasing and maintaining independence.
- Developing necessary skills for everyday life, etc.
- Facilitating participation in your community.
- Gaining employment and working.
- It is also important that the supports outlined in your plan are:
Funded in a cost-effective way.
- Make allowances for what is reasonable to expect of families, carers and the community.
- Not more suitably provided through other support systems.
- Not illegal or intended to replace income.
Is there any limit to the funding available for my plan?
The NDIS does not have a defined limit for each persons funding. Funding is very personalised, and tailored for your specific needs. When support is deemed as ‘reasonable and necessary’, you are entitled to funding for that support. Hence, the focus is not on the cost of funding, but on delivering the supports you need to achieve your goals.

What is the price guide?
The price guide sets a price by the NDIS for supports offered under NDIS. It determines what a service provider can charge for supports, much like a Medicare line item.
Some people find it helpful to look through to better understand the breadth of supports available. However, it isn’t an exhaustive list as it doesn’t cover every single item.
For more information visit the price guide pages on the NDIS website.
