Health Talk: Understanding NDIS Services

If you have been living in Australia, we’re pretty sure you have heard of the acronym ‘NDIS’ before. Whether one has offered it to you or one of your loved ones has it, NDIS Services provide important insurance opportunity you must not miss out and here are the reasons why:

What is NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme provides support to people with disabilities through support packages that are designed to respond to individual needs. Overall, it aims to provide services for people with a permanent and significant disability so they can participate in the community and advance their contributions and status later in life.

Are You Eligible?

The NDIS Service plays under two main keywords: Permanent and Significant disability, which means that first, your disability is likely to be lifelong, and second, your disability has a substantial impact on your ability to practice necessary day-to-day activities.

Other important requirements state that you must be aged between 7 and 65, an Australian citizen, and living in an area covered by the program.

If you have met all of the requirements mentioned, then you are eligible to access NDIS Services.

How Does it Work?

Since the National Disability Insurance Scheme works by providing you support services that fit your personal needs, the NDIA will work with you and your family to develop a plan that is personally suitable for your case.

Usually, they will ask you about your day-to-day life, which areas you are most struggling with, what you want to achieve, and what you need to achieve that.

Since the insurance scheme works for a lifetime, the services being offered can be modified and adjusted to fit your changing needs.

Generally, the types of supports funded under the NDIS covers personal care, mobility equipment, therapies, access to healthcare, transport, family support, home and vehicle modification, and assistance for job opportunities.

With all the list of services the National Disability Insurance Scheme provides, applying for one will surely help you and your loved ones in the long run. With the day-to-day struggles people with disabilities face and encounter, finding the perfect program to help them overcome their disabilities is highly important.
