The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government funding program designed to offer financial support to Australians living with a disability. It is designed to provide funding directly to the individuals and their carers, so that they may gain access to the services they need to live an active fulfilling life.
The funding can be used for a wide range of tailored services and products, such as home modifications, special care, occupational therapy or equipment – whatever the specific person needs to participate fully in occupation, recreation or education.
Managing your plan
There are three ways to manage your plan:
The NDIS provides you with funding so you can access the supports that will best help you pursue your goals.
If you are self-managed, you pay for your supports directly and claim back from the NDIS to get reimbursed. Remember that when self-managing, you are responsible for being aware of what can be claimed for on your plan.

The NDIS will provide funding in your plan to pay for a Plan Manager who pays your providers for you, helps you keep track of funds and takes care of financial reporting for you.
If you are plan-managed, discuss your needs with one of our team or book a consultation. We will provide a quote to your plan manager and once it has been approved and paid, we will supply the products to you.

The NDIS pays your providers on your behalf.
If you are Agency-managed, discuss your needs with one of our team or book a consultation. As an NDIS registered provider, back to sleep is able to submit claims directly to the NDIS.
Assistive Technology explained
Assistive Technology (AT) is equipment or devices that help you do things you can’t do because of your disability. Assistive technology may also help you do something more easily or safely.
You should talk with a qualified AT advisor about your needs and situation to help you identify the most appropriate AT solution. The AT advisor may be an allied health practitioner, continence nurse, rehabilitation engineer, AT mentor or other qualified practitioner.
The NDIS has different processes for low (under $1,500), mid ($1,500 to $15,000) or high cost AT (over $15,000).
Low cost AT (under $1,500) is typically funded from the Core – Consumables section of your budget. Some examples of low cost AT are continence products, rollators, non-slip mats, walking sticks and basic shower chairs or stools.
Mid cost AT ($1,500 to $15,000) requires Assistive Technology to be included as part of the Capital section of your budget. The NDIS does not require a quote for mid cost items but they will require written evidence, such as a report from your AT advisor. Some examples of mid cost AT are lift recliners, hilo/adjustable beds and pressure care mattresses.
High cost AT (over $15,000) requires Assistive Technology to be included as part of the Capital section of your budget. High cost AT purchases will require an assessment from a qualified AT assessor and a formal quote. Some examples of high cost AT include complex hoists, bariatric HiLo beds and high care pressure care mattresses.
