National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

This page contains information about the National DIsability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), how Monash Health supports it, and the services we provide under it.

What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for people under 65 years with permanent disability, and children with developmental delays, to be engaged and live life to the fullest.

With the NDIS, you can choose and have control over how, where and who provides your supports. Everyone has unique needs so the scheme is a tailored and lifelong investment in people to improve their independence over time.

The NDIS also connects people with information and referrals to useful support services in their community.

These are the steps to getting and using an NDIS plan.

  1. Register with the NDIS to assess whether you are eligible
  2. If you are eligible, make a list of things that you need help with
  3. Attend your planning meeting
  4. Plan is approved and funding received
  5. Find and engage service providers
