The National Disability Insurance Scheme otherwise (NDIS) is the largest Australian Government health initiative to be introduced since Medicare. It is overseen by a Government entity known as the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). The similarity in names causes some confusion but at the end of the day it is the job of the NDIA to implement the NDIS.
The aim of the NDIS is to provide people living with disability who are under the age of 65 with the supports they need to lead a life that is as full and independent as possible. The legislation claims that no individual can be worse off under the new initiative.
