Frequently Asked Questions
At Community Health Group we often get asked questions by people looking into disability support for themselves or their loved ones. To make easier for you here our are some of the most frequently asked questions we get about our services. Included in these questions is information about the NDIS for individuals looking to apply for the NDIS.
Whats the NDIS?
The NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme that 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.
The NDIS is not a welfare system. It is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.
Who will be Eligible for the NDIS?
People with a permanent and significant intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability are eligible for support from the NDIS. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
Use the NDIS Eligibility Checklist to see if you meet the requirements to receive NDIS funding
What is the assessment Process?
If you meet the eligibility criteria and you would like to become a participant, call NDIS on 1800 800 110 and ask to make an Access Request.
If you need help filling in the form or making the call, you can contact your Local Area Coordinator, Early Childhood Early Intervention partner or your contact your local NDIA office. They will also ask you about your goals and aspirations and the kinds of support you think you may need.
As part of the Access Request process, you will be asked:
- to confirm your identity and/or a person’s authority to act on your behalf
- questions to see if you meet the NDIS access requirements (age, residence and disability)
- questions about providing consent to enter the NDIS and about seeking information from third parties.
If you currently get disability supports, and you would like your provider to give the NDIS your information, you must first provide consent.
You may be asked to provide some additional information after you make your Access Request. This may include information about your disability and how it impacts on your day-to-day life. You can provide copies of existing information, including letters or reports, or you can ask your treating health professional to fill out and sign a form.
