National Disability Insurance Scheme assistance
October 27, 2020
Do your patients need help to join the National Disability Insurance Scheme?
The Targeted Outreach Project team is reaching out to organisations and local community groups to identify and support vulnerable people who may need free additional assistance from the Assessment and Referral Team (ART) to access the NDIS. ART can provide intensive case management to support potential new participants to access the NDIS. ART can help with:
- Collecting and preparing information
- Filling out and sending NDIS forms
- Discussing disability related needs with doctors and specialists
- Providing functional assessments where needed
- Keeping track of the NDIS access request until the process is finished.
