What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a single, National scheme that funds reasonable and necessary support to help people with disability reach goals throughout life. It also supports carers of people with disability.

The NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).   

Once your plan is approved, participants can start to access funding.    

There are four option to which Active Physiotherapy can assist you with. 


You can choose to manage the funding for your child’s support. You can do this yourself, or you can have a nominee do this on your behalf. This nominee might be a member of your family, a friend or a carer.

Registered plan management provider

You can choose to have a registered plan management provider manage some or all of the funding for your child’s support. A registered plan management provider can find and organise support for you, pay service providers, take care of the paperwork, and work with your service providers to decide how and when your child gets support.

NDIA managed

You can choose to have the NDIA manage the funding for your child’s support. Under this option you choose the service providers you want from the registered provider list on the NDIS website. Active Physiotherapy is a registered provider and you can organise the support your child needs directly with us. The NDIA pays Active Physiotherapy directly under this option. 

A combination of the management options above

You can choose different options for different support. Your child’s plan might have a combination of options.
