What is an NDIS Approved Provider?
If you are eligible for NDIS funding, you will now need to find an NDIS approved provider to assist with delivering the support and/or services you require.
Just like those seeking support from the NDIS, the businesses who provide services to NDIS recipients must be deemed eligible to provide services within the NDIS program.
The NDIS application process for providers consists of:
- An eligibility check
- An online application form
- An audit
- An assessment of application
To become an NDIS approved provider, businesses must:
- Provide information about the company’s corporate structure and contact details
- The ‘registration group’ (IE: Services) that the business will provide
- Complete a self-assessment against NDIS Practice Standards
- Submit to an audit by an approved auditor
Once those steps have been completed, the NDIS Commission will assess the business’ application and make a decision on whether or not the business will be classified as an NDIS approved provider.
This process is purposefully rigorous to ensure that list of NDIS Approved Providers is full of providers who can deliver the best possible services to recipients of NDIS support.
It is important to note, however, that once a business is listed as an NDIS Approved Provider, they must continue to prove that they are maintaining the required standards and are only providing the services or supports they are registered to provide.
An NDIS Approved Provider is an organisation that has demonstrated it can deliver an exceptional standard of support and/or service to recipients of NDIS funding.
