Allied health providers and the NDIS

Allied health providers deliver therapeutic supports to participants and are one of the largest groups of registered providers.

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

Allied health providers may:

  • refer people to information about who can access the NDIS
  • provide supporting evidence as part of an access request, 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 reassessment visit the Allied health providers and reporting page. 

Delivering therapy supports to NDIS participants

Allied Health Professionals Australia (AHPA) (external) provides free resources and guidance to support allied health providers to register with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission. 

AHPA’s provider readiness checklist (external) has important information about being an NDIS provider. You can learn more about:

  • plan-managed, NDIA-managed and self-managed participants
  • supports and services funded under the NDIS 
  • registration process and conditions.

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.

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.
