After you have been issued your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan, you'll be required to determine which service provider/s you'd like to offer your subsidized support. Service providers may apply for registration with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). However, it's not required to provide support in the NDIS.
Service providers that are certified by the NDIA have fulfilled the NDIA's requirements in regards to qualifications, approvals and experience and have the capacity to offer the services. If you’re looking for a registered NDIS Service Provider, then go to OnTrack Tasmania.
The NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework provides an internationally consistent method to empower and assist NDIS users to exercise their choice and control, while also ensuring adequate safeguards are in place, setting the expectation that service providers and their staff will provide high-quality support.
In registering with the NDIA a service provider must adhere to a variety of regulations, laws, policies, and services standards that unregistered providers are not required to follow.
Can I make use of a non-registered service provider?
You can only choose providers that aren't NDIS certified service providers, unless you're managing your own NDIS plan. If you're managing your plan with the assistance of a Support Coordinator, or LAC, the service providers chosen to provide support must be registered with the NDIA.
If you decide to use the services of a provider that isn't registered with the NDIS It is important to ensure that you're satisfied that they offer the appropriate quality and protection.
