On 17 May 2018, the government enacted the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS Provider Definition) Rule 2018 (Cth) (the Rule).
Starting 1 July 2018, community service providers (CSPs) who provide support or services to older people with disabilities will receive continuity of support under the Commonwealth Continuity of Support Programme as a NDIS provider.
To become a NDIS provider, a CSP must:
Identify the standards set by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission (the Commission);
Comply with the standards relevant to the service rendered and specified in the funding agreement;
Undergo the certification process for NDIS providers in the relevant jurisdiction; and
Demonstrate and provide evidence that the service being delivered is in compliance with the standards set by the Commission.
Non-compliant CSPs will not be registered or permitted to provide support or service to older people with disabilities.
For more information, please see the full text of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS Provider Definition) Rule 2018 (Cth) and the Explanatory Statement.
