What Is The NDIS?

What Is NDIS – Accord Care Guide

The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disabilities to receive specialized care and support for their health and well-being. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disabilities or children with developmental delays.

The NDIS can provide all people with disabilities with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, allied health, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries, and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government.

Through the NDIS, funding goes directly to the individual to allocate spending on the services they need from the provider of their choice. A plan is created for each eligible NDIS participant based on specific individual needs and progress goals.

Accord Care costing for NDIS funded supports are identical to the prices set and regulated by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). You can find a copy of the NDIA’s Price Guide here: www.ndis.gov.au/providers/price-guides-and-pricing
