National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded program in Australia that provides support for people with disability. The NDIS provides funding for necessary supports and services to help people with disability live more independently and participate in their communities. The NDIS covers a range of support and services, including myotherapy, lymphatic drainage, and remedial massage.

To access NDIS funding for myotherapy, lymphatic drainage, and remedial massage, the person with disability must first be eligible for the NDIS and have a plan in place. The person’s NDIS plan will outline the supports and services they are eligible for, and the funding available for each support. Myotherapy can be included in the person’s NDIS plan if it is deemed reasonable and necessary to help the person achieve their goals and live a more fulfilling life.

It is important to note that NDIS funding for myotherapy, lymphatic drainage, and or remedial massagemay not cover all costs associated with the service, and participants may need to pay a portion of the costs themselves. It is also important to note that not all myotherapy services may be approved by the NDIS, and participants may need to choose a service provider who is registered with the NDIS to access funding.
