Want to provide allied health care under the NDIS but don't know where to start?
Allied Health Practitioners who want to build their business under the NDIS but also avoid the complexities of NDIS registration may have another option.
Windermere Family Services in Melbourne’s south east is currently looking to partner with psychologists, physiotherapists, speech therapists and occupational therapists who want to provide NDIS services but are not currently registered to do so.
The practitioners need to provide services in the Casey, Cardinia, Dandenong, Baw Baw Shire or Bayside areas.
“Windermere is already a registered NDIS provider. This means if allied health professionals partner with us there is no need to go through the extensive NDIS registration process. In turn we would refer the appropriate consumers to their services,” says Windermere Assistant Early Intervention Services Manager, Rebecca Kriek.
As the roll out of the NDIS continues, more and more people are making the transition to the NDIS and requiring allied health services as part of their NDIS plans. This has increased the demand for NDIS allied health services.
Although the NDIS may offer more opportunity to practitioners, it adds a new level of complexity. To become a registered NDIS provider practitioners must adhere to a range of reporting requirements.
“By partnering together with Allied Health professionals we hope to form mutually beneficial partnerships that will also ultimately benefit our consumers who will receive more efficient services and have a wider range of options,” says Rebecca.
