The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will progressively roll out across Queensland over a three year period. From 1st July 2018, the Gold Coast community will be able to access the scheme. 

NDIS Eligibility Criteria

To become an NDIS participant you must:

  • Have a permanent impairment that significantly affects your ability to take part in everyday activities, or have a developmental delay;

  • Be aged less than 65 when you first apply to enter the NDIS and meet additional age requirements if you live in SA or TAS;

  • Live in Australia in an NDIS area on a specified date;

  • Be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa.

GCPHN will commence work shortly with primary care providers (general practice and allied health) in relation to education and information provision regarding the NDIS and their role in supporting their patients who may have a physical and/or psychosocial disability.
