Already have an NDIS plan? Please see below

Introduction to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS):​

  • For residents of Wyndham, NDIS will be available from October 1st 2018
     

  • A plan is developed with NDIA which can include funds allocated to psychological therapy sessions.
     

  • The entire session fee is covered by your NDIS funding (i.e. no gap fee), up to the maximum allocated in your plan.
     

  • If you, or your child, is already receiving disability funding (including HCWA for early intervention through 'Amaze'), you will be contacted by NDIA and supported to transition to a NDIS plan
     

  • Alternatively, if you, or your child, do not currently have disability funding:​

    • Check if you may be eligible: ndis access checklist

    • NDIS states that they can support individuals who:
      "Have a permanent disability that:

      • reduces your ability to participate effectively in activities, or perform tasks or actions, unless you have support, and

      • affects your capacity for social and economic participation, and

      • means you are likely to require support under the NDIS for a lifetime."
         

  • For current clients who are applying for NDIS, Grace can help by providing professional material which supports the level of clinical assistance needed
     

  • Follow these links for more information about NDIS. Or more specifically about Early Intervention support through NDIS (ages 0-6).

 

I have an NDIS plan, can I use it to see Dr Grace Hancock?

If you would like to use some of your plan funds to see Grace for psychological assessment or therapy, please ensure the following:

  • You have funds allocated to the support area "Improved Daily Living"

    • This can be within either 'Therapeutic Supports' (ages 7 years and over) or 'Early Childhood Intervention' (ages 0-6 years)​

  • Your plan manager confirms that your funding can be used for the type of psychological service that you are seeking

As Grace is a Registered Provider of NDIS, it doesn't matter whether your NDIS plan is managed by NDIA, an agency, or is self-managed. Grace is registered within the consortium Clear Messages.
