NDIA SHOULD DELIVER FAIR AND CONSISTENT PLANS FOR ALL

Reports that the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has forced people to appeal to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal only to see almost 90% of settled claims finalised in secret are concerning.
 
This is symptomatic of the fact that too many participants are receiving poor quality plans and simply not accessing the support they need.
 
It’s incredibly disappointing to see people being made to fight to get the support they need.
 
This isn’t how the NDIS is meant to work.
 
The NDIA should be delivering plans in an accountable and consistent manner for all participants.
 
If the NDIA makes a mistake, then it should admit it and fix it.
 
The rollout of a scheme as big as the NDIS will inevitably encounter challenges, but the Abbott-Turnbull-Morrison Government has dropped the ball on the rollout of the NDIS.
