National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Access

Heroes Allied Health is a registered NDIS provider and can accept referrals for participants who are NDIA-managed, plan-managed or self-managed.

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.

Make clear recommendations for funding and include expected outcomes.

Link the recommendations to your NDIS goals.

Use language that the NDIS uses such as ‘reasonable and necessary’.

Justify and provide evidence for any requested funding for support hours, assistive technology, therapies and any other clinical recommendations.

Include your progress towards your NDIS goals.

Your rights & entitlements

You are entitled to an interpreter, support person, family member or carer to attend your assessment as there can be many questions, talking and explaining during an assessment.

You can ask for the reports to be explained to you and your primary carer.

If the allied health report is missing important information, you have the right to ask the allied health professional to amend the report.
