NDIS FAQs

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a government funding scheme designed to help people under 65 with a disability get care and supports. Providing life-long, individual support to people living with a disability in Australia, the NDIS has been designed to ensure you have genuine choice and control, when it comes to deciding the products, services and support you receive.

An NDIS Plan sets out the individual support services for a participant in the scheme. It is based on the results of your planning meeting, and should reflect your goals and the support you need to achieve them. After the planning process is complete, you will be provided with an NDIS plan, which outlines the support and funding available to you for the time of your plan (usually one year). You may use this funding to buy services directly or through the support service you choose.

Your plan is based on your goals and aspirations, now and for the future. It also covers your functional support needs for daily living and participation, the support you need to pursue your goals, and how you want to manage your plan over time. Some examples of Assistive Technology that an NDIS participant may be eligible to receive funding for includes (but is not limited to):

  • Powered mobility (including electric wheelchairs & scooters)
  • Manual wheelchairs
  • Seating and positioning for your wheelchair
  • Wheelchair accessories including drive controls and powered assist for manual chairs
  • Bathing and toileting equipment
  • Hoists
  • Beds
  • Plus much more.

You will need to allow a sufficient amount for the mobility equipment you will require for the next 12 months. This amount will vary from person to person depending on the equipment you need. If you’re not sure, we can help you work out how much you need to allow. You can also nominate Power Mobility as your preferred equipment provider.

Yes, maintenance, service and repairs can be included in your NDIS Plan, but you will need to allow for it in your NDIS Plan under Assistive Technology. For example, if you have a power chair, you may choose to budget a specific amount of money per year to have the chair serviced and repaired. The team at Power Mobility can help you with this process and provide a Service Provider Agreement to include in your NDIS Plan. Our sister company, GS Electronics, is also an NDIS Registered Supplier, and can assist with all your service and repair needs through the NDIS.

It’s important to get on the right track when it comes to managing your NDIS funding. You can choose from three options to manage your funding – Self-managed, Plan-managed or NDIA-managed. You can also choose a combination of the three options. For example, you may choose to self-manage one part of your plan to start with and have the rest managed by the NDIA. These details will be included in the breakdown of your funding provided, as advised on your NDIS plan.
