NDIS & YOU

If you are a Deaf, Deafblind or hard of hearing person under 65 and may be eligible for an NDIS plan.

 

What is NDIS? 

National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support to Australians with a permanent and significant disability. 

This includes interpreting services for Deaf and hard of hearing people who use sign language to communicate. 

 

Can I access a NDIS plan? 

You may be able to get an NDIS plan if you are

  • Deaf

  • Under 65 years old 

  • Have Australian residency (Australian citizen or a permanent resident)

To find out if you can get NDIS plan, visit the Am I eligible checklist (NDIS website)

 

Can I use NICSS if I have a NDIS plan? 

If you have a NDIS plan that includes interpreting hours, you can book an interpreter for your healthcare appointments plus other appointments e.g. work, hobbies, financial advice, etc.  

 

What if I am not eligible for the NDIS? 

If you are under 65 years and not eligible for NDIS, interpreting can be provided at a cost. 

If you are over 65 years and do not have a NDIS plan, NABS is free for medical appointments.
