NDIS and cystic fibrosis
People living with cystic fibrosis have had mixed experience when it comes to dealing with and navigating the NDIS. In the main, the people who had access to the NDIS have achieved this due to a pre-existing health condition and not their cystic fibrosis. As of next year, this will change. The NDIA will move away from the current lists to determine if someone meets access requirements from mid-2021. Instead, independent assessments will be used to build an overall picture of how a person functions in different areas of their life. The NDIS transition work will commence in January 2021.
More information about independent assessments, as well as other changes the Government is making to make the NDIS simpler, faster, fairer and more flexible, is available here.
