What is NDIS Podiatry Services:
What NDIS patients we can see:
What is self-managed and planned managed:
Self-managed participants: The NDIS participant or a plan nominee, who is someone else who looks after support and services on the patient’s behalf, can pay for services.
This means that these participants are in control of their own NDIS money and can choose which services they would like to attend. Payment is made by the patient/plan nominee upfront, and then NDIS will reimburse the patient through the NDIS portal.
Planned managed: This involves a registered plan manager, who NDIS pays directly for services.
This means that the plan manager chooses which services to attend and they must abide by the NDIS set price guide and will organize the payment for you.
