NDIS Services

National Disability Insurance Scheme, administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), was first legislated in 2013. By 2020, it went into full operation by the Government of Australia. The NDIS registered providers are primarily intended to provide funds to people with a disability and give them respite care. It covers all of the costs associated with disability. For support workers to get paid for what they do, their client must be a participant of the NDIS. What’s great about this scheme is that it is entirely funded by the public. Participants of the NDIS get funded using the scheme. These funds are then subject to specific cap rates (for the support workers) set by the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Agency). If you still don’t understand cap rates, here’s a little insight into them. What Are Cap Rates? Cap rates apply to all those people with disabilities who are a part of the NDIS. The cap rates are primarily intended to provide the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) with vital information regarding the costs charged by registered support providers and/or independent workers. This allows the NDIA to monitor these charges and keep track of these records. This allows the NDIA to make sure the cost of support workers is reasonable and to ensure they’re not overcharging people. However, these rates are subject to market trends, and thus the NDIA updates these rates annually. What is the Cap Rate, and How Does Cap Rates Effect Support Workers?
