How will the NDIS will work for me?

  • NDIS Providers (ProMotion Prosthetics) are registered with the NDIA to deliver a support or product to the participant of the NDIS (you).

 

  • You will receive an individualised plan that identifies the outcomes you wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS, and other supports you require.

 

  • You have choice and control over the providers you wish to engage with to deliver the supports in your plan.

 

  • It’s important to be aware that from the time of registering with the NDIS, (you will receive a participant number) that you are no longer able to receive funds from another funding model (such as the Vic. Artficial Limb Program), so you will need to keep this in mind if there is any work currently being carried out with your current provider.

 

  • After you are registered, you will be able to choose which Prosthetic provider suits your needs and goals best, and a plan meeting will be arranged between you and a representative from the agency.

 

  • It is ideal that you make contact with us prior to this meeting, so you are best prepared for the meeting that will be the point by which your plan will be developed and your prosthetic supports related to.

 

  • Your plan will last for 12 months, and can cover multiple prostheses for you to achieve all your life, family, work and hobby goals.

 

If you have any questions, have registered, or are thinking of registering with the NDIS, get in touch with us today on 03 9532 5098 to discuss your needs.
