Huntington's SA & NT is not a registered provider for the NDIS.
However, we can still help you with the most important tasks of understanding what you need to have in your NDIS Plan and preparing for your planning meeting. We can even attend the meeting with you if you wish.
Although I’ve been my husband’s biggest advocate for the past 10 years the process of planning for the NDIS was a little daunting. I really appreciated Michele from Huntington’s SA & NT Inc looking over my planning documents prior to the planning meeting and then being present at that meeting. It was great to have someone else with knowledge of what we need there to advocate for us and to ask questions I wouldn’t have thought of. - Susan & Michael Dorrington (Seaford)
Ask for a face to face planning meeting with an NDIS representative who has knowledge or understanding of HD. The planning meeting will be lengthy if done correctly. This is NOT a process to be done via a phone call. The meeting can be confronting which is why it is a good idea to have someone you trust, who knows about HD and the NDIS process, there with you.
As HD is a neurological degenerative disease a persons needs can change quickly and for this reason you can ask for your plan to be reviewed on a 6 monthly basis not 12 monthly.
If you have any other questions give the office a call and ask to speak to Michele.
You can contact the office on 0424 062 121.
For participants in our Social & Recreation Program who have an NDIS Plan you are able to recoup the total cost of our program through your Plan.
The process for claiming our program against an NDIS Plan will depend on how each person’s NDIS Plan is managed.
The NDIS code for claiming against our program will be provided in our monthly invoice.
We would be only too happy to discuss approaches to recover costs from NDIS with you and provide any guidance if required.
There is also scope for Aged Care Plans and SACAT orders to cover the program fees and we can also discuss these with you if you need help.
When our education sessions are provided specifically in support of the particular needs and care of a person with HD, usually in a care facility setting, funding to cover that education is generally available from that person’s NDIS Plan.
The NDIS code for claiming education is: 15_038_0117_1_3
We are only too happy to discuss approaches to recover costs from NDIS with you at the same time as planning for education sessions.
