Understanding Provider Registration: How it benefits the NDIS Participants

Aastha Community Services

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-regulated insurance system that finances disability care services in Australia. The participants receive funding directly from the government according to their NDIS plan. Various service providers can provide NDIS participants with services and supports that will help them achieve their goals. But not all service providers have their services registered with the NDIS as the registration process is costly and time-consuming. Many small service providers choose not to register with the NDIA as it is not cost-effective but they can still offer valid and quality services for the participants.

Registered NDIS service providers can be recognised through the ‘I heart NDIS’ and ‘I Support NDIS’ logos on their websites and through the tagline ‘Registered NDIS Provider.’ The main advantage of working with a registered provider is that they are fully recognized as a provider by the government and that means they are committed to a certain standard of quality. They have proved that they comply with NDIS Practice Standards, Code of Conduct and worker screening. Their staff are most probably trained through tools and resources accessible to them through the NDIA. They can even access the latest updates about the NDIS, changes in various processes and supplementary training modules offered by the NDIS Commission before anyone else because of their registered status. Your payments will be hassle-free as they are handled directly through the NDIS portal in the case of registered providers. Also, they are highly incentivised to provide quality services as everything is documented and there is accountability for all their actions.
