How to Become an NDIS Provider in Australia

Are you interested in becoming a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider but aren’t sure where to begin? Fronto Advisory might be able to assist!

Providers are a vital part of the NDIS, providing assistance and support to aid participants in reaching their goals.

The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission is responsible for the supervision of NDIS providers and the requirements for registration of those who want to become an NDIS provider in Australia.

The primary distinction between registered NDIS providers and non-registered service providers is the legal status it holds with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA). A few smaller or independent providers may be contemplating to become an NDIS registered company. However, some service providers aren’t registered with the NDIS for various reasons, but they still provide similar services to NDIS participants.

There are numerous reasons to register:
  • Providers are able to work directly with participants managed by NDIA, which allows for greater business access within their local areas and expanding opportunities.
  • The majority of NDIS participants are more confident to receive services from registered NDIS providers than non-registered providers.
  • Registered NDIS providers are recognized as a business providing a high level of quality and service.
  • There’s transparency between the provider and the participant as providers can directly request funds from the participant’s plan via the NDIS portal.
  • Prices are governed by the NDIS price guide. This means that NDIS providers can ensure the payments they should receive from the participants’ plan
  • Offer support and services to NDIS participants who are part of a plan administered by the NDIA
  • Provide special disability accommodations. Use restrictive practices or design behaviour support strategies
  • Provide support or services to disabled older adults who receive continuous assistance under the Commonwealth Continuity of Support Program related to Specialist Disability Services for Older People
Although the NDIA recommends registration, operating as an unregistered provider isn’t illegal and is permitted. However, you may face legal issues if the service provided to an NDIS participant goes awry.

Under the NDIS, there are various requirements that providers must meet in order to register and maintain their registration at the NDIS Commission.

Service providers who want to be registered are required to apply via the NDIS Application Portal and include details such as:
  • Your organisation’s contact details
  • Your corporate structure
  • Your places of operation/outlets and
  • Your primary staff
With the increased $13.2 million Federal Budget for the NDIS, there are even more benefits to become a registered NDIS service provider.
