Implications of the National Disability Insurance Scheme for health service delivery

While the NDIS is not a health scheme, and health care is a specific exclusion, it will intersect with the health system on a number of levels. To ensure the NDIS does not lead to fragmented care for participants, the Department of Health, the Department of Social Services and the NDIA will need to work closely to monitor and resolve any issues that arise during the implementation phase. This will require active, joint collaboration to develop appropriate policy responses.
