A provider is the term used to describe an individual or organisation that delivers a support or a product to a participant of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Organisations or individuals can apply to be a registered provider with the NDIA information on registering as a provider can be found in the Provider Registration Kit. Applications for registration must be made by submitting the registration smart form available on the Registering as a provider page.
Each participant in the scheme will have an individualised plan which sets out their goals and aspirations, the disability supports (services and products) that will be funded by the NDIS, and other supports the person requires. Providers are engaged by participants to deliver supports in accordance with the participant’s plan. Providers should enter into a written agreement with participants that clearly sets out the supports that they are engaged to provide.
During the NDIS rollout, providers working under existing arrangements as well as under the NDIS will have specific transitional arrangements
National Disability Insurance Agency is working to ensure that all participants are able to access high quality services that will enable them to achieve their goals.
