The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way to help people with disability get the care and supports they require for daily life. The NDIS can provide children and their families government-funded support to assist in achieving community involvement, education, health and wellbeing, and in the long term, independence and employment. The NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.
It centralises disability support and replaces most state-based funding models and is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

There are four ways to manage your NDIS funding, including:
Plan-managed – The NDIA will provide funding in your plan to pay for a Plan Manager who pays your providers for you. They claim directly from your budgets in your plan to pay providers on your behalf, view your plan on the Myplace portal to keep track of your budget and take care of financial reporting for you. Depending on your circumstances, they can also help you choose your providers.
NDIA-managed – The NDIA pays your providers on your behalf. When NDIA-managed, you are able to choose from a range of NDIS-registered providers. Your providers claim payment electronically from your funding. You cannot use unregistered providers. You can look on the Myplace portal to see what claims providers are making against your NDIS funding and keep track of your budget. The NDIA will manage your book-keeping and records of your spending.
Self-management – The NDIA provides you with funding so you can access the supports that will best help you achieve your goals. By choosing to self-manage, you will have control over and responsibility for your NDIS funding so you can manage your own budget for the duration of your plan, and choices in deciding what supports you purchase in line with what is included in your plan, who provides these supports, and how they are delivered.
A combination of the above.
