NDIS

Our NDIS services

There can be three types of support budgets in NDIS plans Core, Capital and Capacity Building. Your funding is based on what is ‘reasonable and necessary’ to achieve your goals in addition to the support provided by family friends and other community and government services.

selectability provides Core and Capacity Building NDIS services.

Core

These generally form the largest part of NDIS budgets and are designed to help you in your day-to-day life and to work towards your goals.

This can include supporting you to attend medical appointments, go shopping and cook your meals or visit family and friends.

Funds in this budget can be used flexibly across the key categories.

 

Capacity Building

These are designed to increase your independence and get you closer to your long term goals.

Funds can only be used for the particular category they have been allocated to in an NDIS plan.

NDIS Changes - COVID-19

What is happening?

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has introduced some changes to pricing and the rules around cancelling services. 

Pricing 

A temporary 10% increase has been added to the following supports

  • Assistance with Daily Life 
  • Assistance with Social and Community Participation
  • Improved Daily Living Skills

Cancellations

If you want to cancel your shift, you are now required to give selectability 10 business days notice to avoid paying a cancellation fee (which is now the full fee of the service).

What do I need to do?

In short - nothing. The temporary price increase has been automatically applied to your services. To avoid paying a cancellation fee, please ensure you give us at least 10 days notice if you do not require support.

Please note your NDIS budget has not been increased in line with this change so if you need to, you can request an unscheduled review.
