Appendix 3: National Disability Insurance Agency
National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is an independent statutory agency responsible for implementing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). NDIA's role is to manage the scheme that provides individualised support to eligible Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers.
The NDIS started in 2013 and it is being rolled out in stages to ensure a smooth transition for people with disabilities and support providers. Hearing Australia is an approved provider under the NDIS and is committed to support clients to test their eligibility for NDIS.
