The legislation that regulates the NDIS and NDIA has changed recently. These changes are to better help people getting on the NDIS and people who have been approved for a package.
- Giving people trying to get a NDIA plan 90 days to provide information, assessments and evidence before the application is withdrawn. This is a significant increase from 28 days.
- If a person has been approved for a plan, the NDIA must commence preparing their plan within 21 days of the person becoming a NDIS participant.
- The NDIA must provide a reason for reviewable decisions to each person directly affected by the decision. This is to provide more transparency for potential participants to apply for an appeal.
- Internal reviews for decisions by the NDIA must be completed within 60 days.
It is hoped that these changes will improve the lives of people living with a disability and provide more security and transparency.
