NDIS Rules Consultation Paper
Monday, 4th February 2013 at 9:26 am

The Federal Government has released a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Consultation Paper on the Rules that explain in detail how the NDIS will operate.

The Government says the purpose of the Consultation Paper is to explain what is intended to be covered in the NDIS Rules and to seek feedback from people with disability, their families and carers, service providers and the broader community.

The Rules will guide the detailed operation of the scheme and accompany the legislation that the Prime Minister introduced to Parliament last year.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme Bill 2012 was introduced into the Federal Parliament in November 2012. The legislation sets up the legal framework for the establishment and operation of the NDIS and the NDIS Launch Transition Agency (the Agency).

“The NDIS Rules are important for guiding how each person will experience the NDIS and the effective management of the scheme, now and into the future,” the Minister for Disability Reform, Jenny Macklin said.

“The Rules will also enable governments to manage the technical details critical to running a scheme that will be an historic reform for Australia.

“The NDIS Rules are still under development and your feedback on them is strongly encouraged,” she said.

Submissions for comment and feedback on the Consultation Paper on the NDIS Rules opened on February 1, 2013 and will close on March 1, 2013.

You can have Your Say on the new forum about the NDIS Rules or provide feedback via email to NDISengagement@fahcsia.gov.au or via the NDIS postal address below:
