How do you get disability-related epilepsy supports in your plan?

Do you need to provide us with evidence?

Yes. To get epilepsy supports in your plan, you need to give us evidence that helps us understand the disability related supports you need. Talk to your my NDIS contact or support coordinator to work out what evidence we need. Learn more about the evidence we need before we create your plan

You can give us any new information or evidence about your support needs when you get it or anytime we talk to you. 

In your planning meeting we’ll ask you, your parent or carer about your disability and how your disability affects your ability to manage your epilepsy by yourself. We’ll ask about what epilepsy supports you currently have, and what supports you might need. We’ll also ask who you get your supports from, and how often you get them.

We’ll also look at any other information about your epilepsy support needs. This may include reports from your allied health professional, your doctor or specialist.

We’ll use this information to decide if epilepsy supports meet the NDIS funding criteria. If they do, we’ll work out the amount of funding to make sure you get the disability-related epilepsy supports you need.

What if you don’t agree with our decision?

If we decide epilepsy 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 epilepsy 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.
