e-Blast: Update on “Independent Assessments”
This week, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) released new information on the federal government’s plan to introduce “Independent Assessments” as part of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) access and planning process. A public consultation process is now open.
Major news out of the new information is the delaying of the introduction of “Independent Assessments”. The Independent Assessment process will now start in mid-2021 for people applying for access to the scheme and late-2021 for existing NDIS participants.
