Mediband – An NDIS Provider

 

We’re happy to announce that the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has approved Mediband to become an NDIS provider.

 

What Is NDIS?

The NDIS is a new federal agency that will provide support for people with disabilities and their caregivers. The government will phase in the system gradually across the states. Until NDIS is in effect in your state, your state’s support services will continue.

NDIS’s goal is to provide people with disabilities with “reasonable and necessary supports” to help them stay well while they achieve more independence. NDIS hopes that this support will help them get jobs and become more involved in their communities. To do so, the agency will provide not only information and referrals, but also material support. Such support might include personal care, equipment, and therapy services.

 

As an NDIS Provider, What Can Mediband Do for Me?

Glad you asked. Now that we’re an NDIS provider, NDIS can cover your Mediband Plus membership, as well as your medical ID purchases. To make sure you get these benefits covered under your NDIS plan, contact us.

 

What Is Mediband’s NDIS Provider Registration Number?

Our provider registration number is 4050018308.

 

How Do I Know If I Can Access NDIS?

The NDIS has a checklist you can use to find out if you might benefit from the service. With your loved ones, think over all of the supports you currently have, both formal and informal. Ask yourself if everything in your support system works well. If not, jot down what you would like to change. If you have needs your current support system does not meet, write down those needs, too.

Learn what services and support systems NDIS offers. Next, gather medical reports and other information that can help determine whether you are eligible. Contact Mediband to learn how you can get your Mediband Plus membership and your medical IDs covered under the plan. Finally, meet with an NDIS partner in your community to discuss your goals and your need for services.

 

For What Section of NDIS Has Mediband Received Approval?

The NDIS approved Mediband for the following capital supports sections:

  • 4.2 Assistive products for personal care and safety

  • 4.3 Communication and information equipment

Read about the other services NDIS covers on the agency’s code guide. Go over these with your medical provider to make sure you’re getting all the assistance you need. Don’t forget. Mediband and Mediband Plus can help you get all the benefits you need. If you have any questions about getting assistance with NDIS coverage, contact us today.
