About the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a federal disability funding scheme that was created to assist and support Australians who have a disability. It is a national system designed to replace the multiple ineffective, disjointed and unfair funding systems that used to exist.

The NDIS provides individual funding plans for each eligible person with a disability. The plan is tailored to their specific needs and goals. The scheme and plansare administered by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).

Once someone has an NDIS plan there are 3 ways to manage the funds associated with that plan:
1. NDIA managed – the government agency manages the funds and only NDIS registered service providers can be used. The service provider claims funds directly from the NDIA on behalf of the participant after each service has been provided.
2. Plan managed – a financial intermediary claims funds from the NDIA on behalf of the participant when they receive invoices from a service provider for services provided.
3. Self-managed – the participant or their representative (e.g. parent or guardian) manages plan funds directly and pays service providers then claims reimbursement from the NDIA.

TAG is a Registered NDIS Service Provider and accepts all types of NDIS funded clients as well as clients who are not eligible for NDIS.

TAG and the NDIS

TAG is a Registered NDIS Service Provider which means that we have passed significant registration requirements to demonstrate that we are able to provide high-quality therapy services to people with a disability.

Therapy Alliance Group has also invested extensive time and money advocating for people with disabilities to get access to the scheme and to ensure plans are appropriate for individual needs. We continue to provide the government agency (NDIA) feedback through direct liaison with the NDIA, submissions, parliamentary enquiries, forums, and working parties. This advocacy and feedback work is all done in a volunteer capacity and at our own expense. We are determined to ensure the NDIS is fair, accessible and sustainable to help provide for people with a disability now and in the future.
