How does the NDIS work?

An NDIS appointed planner will meet with you to establish your support needs.

To be eligible for NDIS funding you must be:

  • Under the age of 65 - at Aberstone we support people from 7 years old to 65 years old.

  • An Australian citizen or permanent resident.

  • Use special equipment or receive support from another person due to your disability.

  • Need support now to reduce future support needs.

NDIS Pricing

  • The price that Aberstone charges for service delivery is that which is mandated by the NDIS.

  • Aberstone implements new pricing for services when the new NDIS Price Guides are released.

  • Aberstone charges TTP prices (Temporary Transformation Payment). The TTP is a charge on top of the base rate price limit for attendant care and community and centre-based activities. The Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) is an additional cost that providers can charge as they continue to transition to working under the NDIS.
