How do you get diabetes management supports in your plan?

Do you need to provide us with evidence?

Yes. Talk to your local area coordinator, early childhood partner, support coordinator or planner to work out what evidence we need. We may ask you or someone else to give us evidence to show the support meets the NDIS funding criteria. This could include information from your doctor like your Diabetes Care Plan.

You will need to show that you need the support because of your disability. You will also have to show the support is or is likely to be effective and beneficial for you.

In your planning meeting, your local area coordinator, early childhood partner or planner will ask you about how your disability affects the things you can and can’t do.

We’ll want to know how it affects your ability to manage your diabetes by yourself. We’ll also ask whether your diabetes is stable. And we’ll look at what diabetes management supports you currently get.

We’ll want to know who you get the supports from, and how often you get them.

We’ll use this information to decide the reasonable and necessary funding to include in your plan. This is to make sure we fund the disability-related diabetes management supports you need.

What if you don’t agree with our decision?

If we decide diabetes management supports don’t meet our NDIS funding criteria, we can’t include them in your plan. 

We’ll give you written reasons why we made the decision. You can contact us if you’d like more detail about the reasons for our decision. 

If you don't agree with a decision we make about your request for diabetes management supports, you can ask for an internal review of our decision. You’ll need to ask for an internal review within 3 months of getting your plan.
