Insurance Scheme

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Access

If you are not a participant of the NDIS and you have a Disability, formal allied health assessments and reports, as well as medical reports from your medical specialists may be needed to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and demonstrate the severity and impact of your Disability.  

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Participants

If you are a participant of the NDIS, allied health professionals can make recommendations for services, equipment and supports that the NDIS can fund.

Allied health reports can be helpful in your NDIS planning and review meeting.

It is unlikely that you will need your allied health professional to attend your review meeting, however if it is needed you can ask them to attend. There will be a fee for this service.

What a good report
will include

A good report can mean the right amount of funding but a poor quality report might mean that you do not have access to adequate supports to live independently. It is important to bear in mind that you may not get everything your allied health professional recommends.
