Our NDIS Services

We know that your disability doesn’t define you. You’re a unique person with your own interests, relationships and aspirations. Our job is to provide the support you need to develop your skills, explore your interests, and live as independently as possible.

Focused Health Care is a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider, meaning we meet government safety and quality standards for providing services to people with a disability. We’re based in Brisbane and Townsville but we provide services to clients across Queensland.

You can access our services as a private client or by using your NDIS funding. This page explains how to become an NDIS participant and explains the services we provide.

Plan Management

Our Plan Management Team helps you get the most out of your NDIS funding. You can include ‘plan management’ or ‘improved life choices’ service in your plan at no extra charge.

NDIS participants who use a plan manager to manage their NDIS plan can choose to use both NDIS registered providers and non-registered providers for their supports and services.

Plan management is a partnership approach to your NDIS plan. You and your plan manager play different roles to ensure you gain the most benefits (and the least hassle) from your NDIS funding.

Your Focused Health Care plan manager will take care of the financial side of your NDIS plan such as:

  • Claiming from the NDIA
  • Paying providers
  • Processing your expenses
  • Providing you with a monthly statement.

You retain choice and control over your NDIS plan. That means:

  • Choice over the services you purchase, who provides them and how much you pay for them
  • Control over when and how those services are delivered.

EASY STEPS TO ACCESSING YOUR NDIS

You will need to make an Access Request by calling 1800 800 110. You can make the call yourself or we can call on your behalf.

The National Disabilities Insurance Agency (NDIA), the organisation that runs the NDIS, will decide if you’re eligible for NDIS support by asking you for information such as:

  • Your name and age
  • Your address (you need to live in Australia to use the NDIS)
  • Whether you are an Australian citizen or hold a Permanent or Protected Special
  • Category Visa
  • The nature of your disability and its impact on your daily life
  • Medical information, such as reports from your doctors or allied health professionals
  • Your permission for them to talk to other professionals and agencies involved in your care.

The NDIA will write to you with their access decision. If they’ve told you you’re not eligible for the NDIS, we can help you work out what to do instead. And if you’ve received the good news that you are eligible for the NDIS, then it’s time for your planning meeting.

DO YOU NEED DISABILITY SUPPORT NOW?

The NDIS funding process takes a bit of time and we understand that you may need help right away.

You can use Focused Health Care’s services as a private client while you wait to hear about your NDIS funding (or instead of NDIS funding if you weren’t eligible).

FAQ

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) funds support and services for Australians under 65 who are living with a permanent or significant disability.

The NDIS is designed to give you as much choice as possible over the services you receive. You can use the NDIS if you’re an Australian under 65 living with intellectual, physical, cognitive, sensory or psychosocial disabilities. You can also use the NDIS to get early intervention services for children with a disability.
