The NDIS will be delivered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
The NDIA is an independent statutory agency. Their priority is to ensure people with disability are supported to meet their goals.
The changes that are required to existing disability support systems are significant. Arrangements are being put in place to ensure the scheme can be introduced gradually, ensuring a smooth transition for people with disability and support providers.

The NDIS is a national scheme and is administered through Commonwealth Legislation. Funding for the scheme is through the pooling of state, territory and commonwealth programs. There was an increase to the Medicare levy in 2014 to help fund the national rollout of the scheme.
Our role is to help the MS community understand the opportunities of the NDIS, get ready for the changes and access the NDIS. We are also here to support the appeal process if you aren't able to access NDIS, or any decisions around reasonable and necessary supports.
