NDIS - What does it mean? Am I eligible?

Gong Life Care Solutions is a registered provider under the NDIS scheme. We are a local Australian business located in Wollongong, NSW, supplying equipment all around Australia. Gong Life Care Solutions specifically caters to the home, aged, and disability sectors providing innovative high quality products from international manufacturers, to assist people to remain as independent as possible in the home.

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The NDIS website further explains:

• National: The NDIS is being introduced progressively across all states and territories.
• Disability: The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
• Insurance: The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
• Scheme: The NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.

Eligibility


In general terms, the scheme provides funding for eligible Australians aged under 65, who have a permanent and significant disability. This translates to “assistance or products that help a person in their daily life and help them participate in the community and reach their goals”.
To check your eligibility, you can complete the checklist on the NDIS website. https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis/am-i-eligible

You could also talk initially to your health care provider or support worker, or ask a family member or friend to assist you to make enquiries at a local NDIS office or by phone on 1800 800 110

Equipment


One of the questions asked in the process of determining eligibility is whether or not you need to use special equipment because of a permanent and significant disability. When you develop an NDIS plan for your supports and services, the budget can include items of required equipment, such as assistive technology.
The range of options within this category would be many and varied, as NDIS plans are created to suit individual needs.
