Productivity Commission Releases National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Costs Report

Posted 19 October 2017

The Productivity Commission's Report into the NDIS is out!

Family Advocacy made a submission with the help of families. We would once again like to thank all families who took part in this. Your responses have been taken on board by the Commission and will hopefully lead to better outcomes for people with disability in utilizing the NDIS.

The Commission referred to Family Advocacy's concern about participants and nominees not being properly informed of the options available to them for managing their NDIS plan. the Commission has also called for broader transparency throughout the planning process and has emphasised that planners should have a strong understanding of different types of disability,

The Commission has also made a recommendation that a draft plan be made available for participants to allow for minor amendments or adjustments to be made, rather than triggering a full plan review. 

Together we have succeeded in raising these important issues to the foreground. Let's hope that positive changes to the NDIS are on the horizon!
