4 Mistakes You Must Avoid To Avail The Benefits Of The NDIS Services

Posted February 15, 2019 by enhanced2017

The extensive NDIS plans cover a lot of ground to grant benefits to the applicants. However, without carefully vetting your application process, your NDIS benefits may not be of much help.

28th December 2018, Adelaide,The National Disability Insurance Scheme is an immensely beneficial scheme for those who are in need of personal care and disability assistance funding in Australia. The NDIS plan accommodates the needs of the differently-abled, to offer them community access in Adelaide and other Australian cities. However, given the expansive nature of the plans with all its intricacies, even with the help of ‘Support Coordinators’ the applicants end up making mistakes.
Before speaking to any disability service providers, the applicants should go ahead and make sure that they do not make any mistakes when applying for the NDIS. The most common errors that should be avoided in this regard are as follows:
1. Lack of knowledge
The NDIS is an extensive program. If you possess enough knowledge about it, you can tailor the perfect personal care assistance plan for yourself with the help of a support coordinator. However, without learning about what you are being offered, your NDIS plan may not be very fruitful.
2. Miscommunicating your Needs
The NDIS plan is prepared based on what you share with the planner. The more information you provide, the better they can prepare the NDIS plan for you. The better your plans are drafted, the better the disability service providers can serve you. So, ambiguity and vagueness are two elements you should avoid when you are discussing your NDIS plan.
3. Mobility allowance post-NDIS registration
A lot of individuals feel that their mobility allowance remains applicable alongside their NDIS benefits. However, this is not true. The NDIS has its own mobility-related funds and transport support plans. One cannot avail mobility allowance as well as the NDIS travel benefits. The NDIS has transport planners solely appointed to help applicants with their travel related requirements.
4. Lack of clarity
Merely educating oneself on NDIS jargon and preparing a plan is not enough. You should also speak to your planner and clarify any queries you have to make the most of your NDIS plan. The good thing about the NDIS is that they are more than willing to communicate with you at a time of your choice, over the phone or in person; it would be remiss to not utilise the scope for gaining proper insight into your benefits.
The NDIS can be a life-changing benefit and offer you unparalleled community access in Adelaide and other Australian cities when planned carefully.
