The role of allied health providers in the NDIS

Allied health covers several different professions delivering therapeutic support to NDIS participants. Allied health providers are one of the largest groups of registered NDIS providers. 

Allied health providers are responsible for providing evidence, assessments and reports that inform access and planning decisions made by NDIA delegates (planners) under the NDIS Act.

For example, allied health providers: 

  • refer people to information about who can access the NDIS.
  • provide supporting evidence as part of an Access Request requirements, including evidence that the person has or is likely to have a permanent disability.
  • provide copies of reports or assessments that describe the extent of the functional impact of the disability.

For help with report writing for a participant plan review visit the Allied health providers and reporting page. 

Delivering therapy supports to NDIS participants

If you are considering delivering therapy supports to NDIS participants and would like information about the NDIS, refer to the provider readiness checklist.

This will guide you through the key information you need to know about being a registered or unregistered provider including, the difference between plan-managed, NDIA-managed and self-managed participants, supports and services funded under the NDIS and registration information. 

Being a registered NDIS provider brings a range of benefits. This includes broadening the range of people you can deliver supports to and extending your online presence through the NDIS Provider Finder tool in the myplace provider portal. 

All NDIS providers across Australia are registered by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission .

The NDIS Code of Conduct applies to all providers of supports to NDIS participants whether registered or unregistered. 

The NDIA sets price limits for some supports to ensure NDIS participants receive value for money.

Changes to prices are updated in response to market trends and changes in costs are outlined in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits.
