NDIS SERVICES SUPPORT FUNDS

Currently, there are three different categories of NDIS service support funds. Not all of these may be supported under your plan, so it’s important that you understand which of these categories applies to your situation. You will find this information at the NDIS website, however, a summary is provided below.

The three support categories are as follows:

  1. Core Supports
  2. Capacity Building Supports
  3. Capital Supports

Your plan provides a set budget which can be only spent on the support category or categories nominated in your plan. Each of the three support categories includes a range of services. So for example, if your plan provides funding for only the Core Supports category, then you can only select NDIS services from that category. If your plan provides funding for both the Core Supports and Capacity Building Supports categories, you can select services from both of these categories, and so on for the third category of Capital Supports.

This category includes four subcategories of NDIS services, as stated by the NDIS:

  1. Daily Activities
  2. Transport
  3. Consumables
  4. Social & Community Participation

Your plan will state which of these four subcategories are funded from the NDIS. Whilst the Core Supports category has some inbuilt flexibility, you may or may not be able to select from all four of these subcategories. This ability will be detailed in your plan.

As an example, Core Supports services include assistance to cook meals, help to attend a concert or purchase sporting equipment relevant to your disability. You can access these services via your chosen NDIS provider.

This category includes nine subcategories of NDIS services, as stated by the NDIS:

  1. Support Coordination
  2. Increased Social & Community Participation
  3. Improved Living Arrangements
  4. Finding & Keeping a Job
  5. Improved Relationships
  6. Improved Health & Wellbeing
  7. Improved Learning
  8. Improved Life Choices
  9. Improved Daily Living

Your plan will state which of these nine subcategories are funded from the NDIS. However, there is no flexibility within the Capacity Building Supports category to select services from subcategories that are not funded in your plan. All of these services are designed to help you learn new skills and increase your independence. You can access these services via your chosen NDIS provider.

This category includes two subcategories of NDIS services, as stated by the NDIS:

  1. Assistive Technology
  2. Home Modifications

If the Capital Supports category is funded by your NDIS plan, then you can purchase equipment, as well as request modifications to your home or vehicle. This support category is aimed at making your life more comfortable and enhancing your lifestyle. You can access these services via your chosen NDIS provider.

As a NDIS service provider, we want you to get the most out of your NDIS plan. This includes providing advice on how to best manage the NDIS funds in your plan. You have three options for managing these funds and the choice is in your hands.

Managed Plan: This option is where the NDIS provides additional funds to pay for a Plan Manager who also helps you to learn how to self-manage your plan. Acting as your Fund Manager, Kare Seniors pays the providers of your services, ensures that all the associated paperwork is completed and makes certain that the selected services comply with NDIS rules.

Self-Managed Plan: This option is where you decide to manage your funds yourself. The benefit of this strategy is that you can use your creativity to select a mix of NDIS services that suit your needs as long as they are funded in your plan and considered reasonable and necessary. The downside is that you must ensure that the services are good value, check that you have the funds available to pay for these services and pay all your service provider invoices on time.

NDIA Managed Plan:  This option is where the NDIA (National Disability Agency) manages your NDIS funds on your behalf. It can be an easy option for participants who often feel overwhelmed with managing their own funds. You are, however, restricted to using only NDIS registered service providers and you will need to adhere to set price limits for the services you require.

The NDIS Price Guide ensures that NDIS participants are able to access reasonable and necessary services that increase their independence, whilst promoting their ability to choose their NDIS service provider and control their funds.
