IDEAL Plan Management is open and serving clients every business day throughout Christmas and New Year.

The Minister from the NDIS announced on the 12th June 2020 the first stages of a post-coronavirus NDIS, following a review of temporary measures to support participants and disability providers during the pandemic.

As community restrictions have eased, the NDIS will move to a post-pandemic phase from 1 July that includes the conclusion of some of the temporary measures.

On recommendation from the review, the following will apply from 1 July 2020:

  • Removal of temporary 10 per cent price loading on certain core and capacity building supports;
  • Definition of the cancellation period is reduced from 10 days to levels under the previous policy; and
  • Medium Term Accommodation (MTA) period will be returned to the original policy of 90 days (rolled back from 180 days).

Participant focused coronavirus response measures, including offering alternatives for face-to-face planning meetings to participants, plan extensions for up to 24 months following review and flexible use of funds to purchase low-cost assistive technology, will remain in place until further reviews are completed.
