The NDIS or National Disability Insurance Scheme is a government-funded initiative via the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to help people under the age of 65 and living with a permanent and significant disability to receive funding and support.
The NDIS provides information and connections as well as relevant support services to anyone with a disability via an individualised plan. These support services work closely with the participant’s careers, family members and parents of a person with a permanent disability to ensure that the social, emotional, educational, medical, physical and mental needs of a client can be met using the personalised funded plan with an NDIS consumables budget.
The NDIS oversees and monitors the way in which funding is used to ensure the support/ assistance or products provided to a person will aid them in their daily life activities to be able to more fully participate in the community.
By end of 2020 is it estimated over 460,000 Australians were part of the NDIS and have NDIS plans. Every individual’s NDIS plan will be different and your requirements for NDIS consumables will be different. There are major categories of NDIS consumables, and the NDIS core supports include daily continence supplies, wound care products, nutritional aids, skincare, daily living aids and protective aids - since every NDIS plan is different, this also means that you have your own NDIS consumables budget.
In order to purchase NDIS consumables individuals can purchase these from NDIS registered providers who offer different funding schemes as part of their NDIS plan. Three major types of NDIS funding schemes are:
You have funds already accessible through your consumables budget
Are reimbursed for purchases made
You have a current NDIS plan manager/support coordinator that you will direct the invoice for payment
Once the invoice is paid the goods are sent out
All your orders are directly placed through your NDIS portal
You will need to complete a service agreement completed before the goods and services are finalised.
