In the Tasmania test;
- providers won’t need to change the way they make claims for supports delivered
- there will be no changes to support items description or numbers a provider uses to claim
- we are gradually simplifying language and addition of new categories but the computer system will do this in the system.
NDIS plans will be built by support categories. We will still have stated and flexible supports, but these will be listed at the support category level, rather than line-by-line items, providing more flexibility for participants in how they use their plan.
Participants will use the current support items description or numbers a provider uses to claim
As part of the test we’re working towards making our language consistent across NDIS plans and portals.
The name of the support catalogue item in the plan will be the same name in the participant and provider portals, reducing confusion and administration spent on cross checking services and claims, making it smoother for participants and providers to submit claims.
