The NDS continues to work across key sector issues on behalf of its providers, including policies related to Support Coordinators and SDA pricing and payments, along with keeping our members up-to-date on the latest changes in the NDIA and NDIS.

Here are some timely updates.

NDIA modifies support coordinators attendance policy at plan review meetingsIn a welcome development, the NDIA has moderated its stance on the attendance of Support Coordinators at plan review meetings. The Frequently Asked Questions now states that Support Coordinators can claim for attending a plan review meeting, as long as it is not for the purpose of advocacy, which they say is more appropriately funded by through the National Disability Advocacy Program. We are seeking guidance about the expectations of Support Coordinators at plan review meetings.The NDIA is undertaking a review of Intermediaries (Support Coordination and Plan Management) to clarify roles and responsibilities, review and refine policies, and develop practice guidance and training materials. They are currently undertaking a limited consultation prior to releasing a discussion paper.
