In positive news, the NDIA has advised that Support Coordination will remain claimable from Core until the end of March. The agency says this extension of this flexibility will allow time for participants to transition to alternative support arrangements.
Contrary to its previous position on the matter, the NDIA has today advised that Support Coordination will no longer be claimable from Core after February 28.
IDEAL Plan Management will continue to assist Support Coordinators and participants to claim and process payments for services provided up to this date.
In welcome news, however, the NDIA has also advised that the option to purchase low-cost assistive technology (smart devices and fitness equipment) will continue until further notice. In an earlier announcement, the NDIA also advised that automatic plan extensions will remain in place.
