Well this really is good news!!Breaking news out of the NDIS this afternoon ...
And it's some good news on masks 😷
😷 From today NDIS participants who rely on support workers for face to face help every day can claim the cost of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) from their NDIS funds.
But - and this is an important but - this is just for participants in Victoria and New South Wales.
😷 And people who live in their own home and who test positive for COVID-19 and are required to self-isolate or quarantine can now pay for the costs of getting the house cleaned from their NDIS funds.
You can pay for the cleaning and the PPE from your core funds.
If you are plan or Agency managed, you can buy PPE through registered providers.
Self-managed participants can choose where they buy PPE and claim from their funds in their usual way.
