Why choose Own Body?
At Own Body we ensure that you are involved in the decision-making process every step of the way to ensure you get the most out of your NDIS funding. With your consent, we also ensure everyone involved in your NDIS journey (whether it be a family member, support coordinator, plan manager or other treatment providers) are all informed of your treatment plan so as to provide the best possible outcome.
We believe that all fees should be equal, no matter which client or funding body we are working with. As such, we are one of very few NDIS providers that do not charge the full NDIS price for your consultations (except for the initial two (2) sessions), enabling you to potentially get more out of your NDIS plan than you expect. Being a multidisciplinary allied health provider, having different therapy supports from different disciplines who all share the same core values, ensures that you will receive the best possible outcome and the best possible experience in your NDIS journey.
What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an government funded insurance scheme that funds reasonable and necessary supports to help those living with a lifelong disability (physical or intellectual disability) to reach their goals. It also supports carers who provide care for NDIS participants.
The NDIS works with its participants individually and recognises that each person is different, has different needs and different goals. This means that your NDIS plan will be reflective of what you need personally to achieve your own goals.
The NDIS is run by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA)
What is an NDIS Plan?
People with lifelong physical or intellectual disability might be able to access an NDIS support plan. The plan is based on your very own goals. It covers the various supports you require to reach those goals. Your NDIS plan will include:
- Informal support that you are provided by a carer or support worker
- Support from community and mainstream providers
- Support that is funded by the NDIS
NDIS Funded support might include therapies (e.g. physiotherapy, podiatry, occupational therapy), assistive technology/equipment which will provide you with assistance to achieve your goals. These NDIS funded supports must be reasonable and necessary
What does reasonable and necessary support mean?
Reasonable and necessary support means a particular support is vital for you to be able to reach your various goals. To be considered reasonable and necessary, a support must be:
- Directly related to your physical and intellectual disability
- Value for money
- Likely to work and benefit you in achieving your goals
- Based on scientific and medical evidence
How will my NDIS plan be managed?
The NDIS strives to ensure that you are in full control of your NDIS Plan and how things are set out. Due to this, you have four different options to choose from when you set up your plan. These are:
- Self-Managed: This means you manage every single part of your plan. You do this yourself or you can nominate a family member or carer to manage this for you. In essence, it means you manage the funds yourself.
- Plan-Managed: This means that you choose a third-party provider to manage the funds of your NDIS plan. You have control of what you want your funds spent on, and the plan manager just manages the finances of your plan. They ensure all your support workers are paid from the right support category, they take care of paperwork and work with your service providers to decide how and when you get the support.
- NDIA Managed: This means that the NDIA will manage your funds. Under this option, you choose the service provider and the service provider deals directly with the NDIA to pay for supports provided directly
- A combination: Because you have total control of your plan, you can choose different options for different supports.
