Aged Care vs NDIS: Who's responsible for what?

NDIS versus aged care: who funds what?

Why take this course?

For participants over the age of 65, there’s not always a clear distinction between what the NDIS should fund and what the aged care system should fund. To put it simply: the NDIA will only fund reasonable and necessary supports for a person’s disability and defer to the aged care system for any supports related to their ageing needs (which, as you can imagine, the line gets a little blurry). 

The NDIA has been monitoring this intersection like a hawk, so now is a good time for providers to get on top of who funds what so they can provide the best support for ageing participants. 

This two hour workshop will give you the confidence to draw a line between the two, as well as provide evidence for the disability-related support needs of an ageing participant. The ultimate goal? More equitable funding for older Australians.
