The NDIS doesn’t fund general health or education services, because these are available to everybody in the community. However they can help you access, or support you while using, any community services.
Anyone who is eligible can access the NDIS. To see if you are eligible, use the NDIS’s eligibility checklist.

If you’re eligible and your Access Request is approved, you’ll work with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to create your NDIS plan.
Your plan will outline your individual goals and what funding has been allocated to help you achieve them. Once you have your NDIS plan, you’ll be able to start finding services and supports. If you have ‘support coordination’ included in your plan, a Support Coordinator can help you make the most of your NDIS plan.

Everyone’s plan will be different, because it’s unique to your needs. The NDIA will ask questions about your lifestyle, your goals, and what kind of support you need so that a plan can be tailored to suit you.
Each year, you can review your plan with the NDIA to make sure you’re receiving the right supports. If needed, you can request one sooner.

Your NDIS plan will show you how much funding you have, the categories you have access to and what they’re for. We can go through your plan with you to explain your options based on your funding.
Once you have your NDIS plan and know which supports you’re funded for, we’ll work with you to find the right services for your funding.
The TTP applies to some types of support people with disability receive under the NDIS, such as assistance with daily personal activities. The TTP helps providers continuously improve the quality of their services.
