National Disability Insurance Agency / Funding

NDIS
The NDIS is Australia’s scheme for the funding of support and equipment required by people living with disabilities. 

As an orthotic and prosthetic provider for the NDIS, we can assist and support eligible participants in achieving their functional and lifestyle goals.

Our experienced Sunshine Orthopaedic Services clinicians can guide you through the registration process and are there to discuss your personal goals and expectations. They will work with you to develop a treatment plan and discuss your equipment requirements to help you achieve these goals.

Who is eligible for NDIS funding?

Australian residents up to the age of 65 years of age with significant and permanent disabilities can become ‘participants’ once they have completed the application process.  This includes most amputees and clients with musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. 

To see if you are eligible, and for more information on how to apply please head to the NDIS website https://www.ndis.gov.au/ .

What if I’m not eligible for NDIS?

If you are not eligible for the NDIS there are other options available.

In Queensland the Queensland Artificial Limbs Service (QALS) exists to support those amputees not covered by NDIS. For more information regarding QALS please head to their website https://www.health.qld.gov.au/qals

Orthotic clients may be eligible for funding assistance through the Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS).   Mass clients will require a referral from a private physician. Please find more information for MASS here https://www.health.qld.gov.au/mass/prescribe.

Other Funding Options

In addition to the above funding bodies we are approved providers for DVA, Work Cover and Third Party Insurers.

We look forward to hearing from you.
