PODIATRY and the NDIS
Am I eligible for Podiatry services through the NDIS?
Eligible participants will have access to podiatry services - either in home or at a clinic - depending on the participants funding plan.
There are five ways that funding plans can be managed.
Agency Managed – this is where the providers claim directly from the NDIA.
Plan Manager – funding in your plan is allocated for a third party to manage the financial transactions in your plan.
Self Managed – you (or your nominee) directly manage the funds; all transactions are completed by the participant for services rendered.
Automated Payments (transport only) – these funds can be deposited into an NDIS bank account weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
Combination – a combination of the above four options can be used together to meet your individual needs.
If you are eligible for podiatry services through the NDIS and want to know how to arrange podiatry services with Easy Feet - follow the link below that represents your funding plan.
If you aren't eligible for Podiatry services through the NDIS, Easy Feet can arrange services as a private patient.
Easy Feet Podiatry recommends using a Plan Manager.
