Frequently asked questions

To be eligible for the NDIS you must:

  • have a permanent and significant disability or a developmental delay
  • be an Australian citizen, or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa
  • be under 65 years of age
  • need support from a person or equipment to do everyday activities

If you want to be part of the NDIS, you must first meet the access requirements of the NDIS.

You can contact the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) on 1800 800 110 if you have any questions about access to the NDIS.

When you have gained access to the NDIS, the NDIA or one of their partner organisations will work with you to develop your first plan.

If you don’t meet the requirements, find out what you can do if you’re not eligible for the NDIS.

Each year, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) reviews the prices of NDIS supports. As stated in our Service Agreement, DPV Health adjusts prices in line with these pricing reviews.

Please note that the NDIA also increases the funds available in each participant’s NDIS plan if the prices of their supports have changed. This ensures that the same number of hours are available for participants to use.

For current information on NDIS support prices, please see the NDIS Price guides and pricing

If you have any questions, please contact our NDIS Engagement Officers at info@auslife.com.au

The types of supports that the NDIS may fund for participants include:

  • Daily personal activities
  • Transport to enable participation in community, social, economic and daily life activities
  • Workplace help to allow a participant to successfully find or keep employment in the open or supported labour market
  • Therapeutic supports including behavioural support
  • Help with household tasks to allow the participant to maintain their home environment
  • Help to participate by skilled personnel in aids or equipment assessment, set up and training
  • Home modification design and construction
  • Mobility equipment
  • Vehicle modifications

There are some kinds of supports that will not be funded or provided by the NDIS.
The NDIS Act and the rules made under the NDIS Act also tell us which supports will not be funded by the NDIS.

The NDIS cannot fund a support that is:

  • The responsibility of another government system or community service
  • Not related to a person’s disability
  • Relates to day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s support needs
  • Is likely to cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has a national approach to early childhood early intervention (ECEI) that gives children aged 0-6 years quick access to support that is tailored to their needs.

This support might be information, emotional support or referral to other services like community health services, playgroups or peer support groups. Your child might also get sessions with early childhood early intervention providers in the short term or medium term. This level of intervention might be all your child needs to reach their developmental goals.

If your child has longer-term support needs, your child might get an individualised NDIS support plan. This will help your child gain access to the appropriate supports over the long term.

The NDIS also supports children aged seven years and over, but the steps to support are different for children in this age group.
