What is the NDIS?
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was legislated by the Australian Federal Government in 2013 (which came into effect from 2020) to fund all ‘reasonable and necessary’ costs to support Australians with a ‘permanent and significant disability’.
Beneficiaries of the scheme can self-manage their own care by engaging and allocating the funds to services provided by registered suppliers.
What this means for NDIS Registered Providers/Support Workers
To comply with current legislation, at a minimum, the NDIS Registered Providers/Support Workers are required to hold both Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance.
