Notes about these NDIS FAQs from Andrew Stewart (Managing Director of Hearing Connections) ...
These FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) are related to hearing devices and additional technologies and services related to hearing loss and deafness.
This is not a guarantee that everything stated below will apply to you – it is an indication of what might apply based on the information I have gathered to date.
I received acceptance into the NDIS in September 2016, and as at the time of writing, had not been informed as to when a planning meeting would occur.
Refers to a hearing aid, processor for a cochlear implant (not the implant itself), BAHA (bone anchored hearing aid) and the like.
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA):
Is the Federal government organisation that is running the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
This is my contribution to help Deaf and hearing-impaired people, and others with hearing loss, to understand the NDIS better and how it works.
The NDIS is constantly changing, so you will need to check to ensure your questions are answered by the NDIA.
