The Federal Government has a new way of paying for interpreting services. The new name is National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). If you are Deaf, under 65 and live in a NDIS site, you may be able to access a NDIS Plan. Eligible people with a NDIS Plan may have interpreting services included in their Plan. Visit our NDIS page to find out more.

Services NICSS does not cover

If you are not eligible for NDIS funding, the National Auslan Interpreter Booking & Payment Service (NABS) provides Free interpreters for private medical and health care appointments.  Find out more about NABS services.
