What happens if my NDIS Plan doesn’t include nursing services?
In order for your nursing care to be funded under the NDIS your NDIS Plan must first include Capacity Building in it.
If you receive nursing care services that are not part of your NDIS Plan then you will need to fund those services yourself or receive them through the State health care system.
Which nursing services does NDIS fund?
The types of services that can be included in your plan are those that would contribute to your ability to live independently.
All NDIS funded nursing services must:
be related to your disability
contribute to your long term wellbeing
be delivered by a nurse and
be limited in time.
The NDIS won’t fund nursing services that:
can be funded under the state health care system
are not directly related to your disability.
are not required to be delivered by a qualified nurse
are not considered ‘capacity-building’ that is, they don’t contribute to your independence or build up your skills towards independence
Very kind and caring people don't do it for the money.
They are very supportive...
