What Is The NDIS?

The NDIS is a new way for people with a disability under the age of 65 to receive the specialised care and support for their health and wellbeing.

Afford’s costing for NDIS funded supports are identical to the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) prices set and regulated by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). You can find a copy of the NDIA’s Price Guide here: www.ndis.gov.au/providers-price-guides-and-pricing

The National Disability Insurance Scheme is called the NDIS and was introduced in 2013. The scheme is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) and allows individuals with a permanent and significant disability to access government funding.

The NDIS focuses on the person with a disability and provides them with the choice to decide where and how to use their funding. Supports can be across many areas including employment, allied health, accommodation, independence, being involved in outdoor activities, sport and community access.

Through the NDIS, Funding goes directly to the individual to allocate spending on the services they need from the provider of their choice. A plan is created for each eligible NDIS participant based on specific individual needs and progress goals.
