Do you need to provide us with evidence?
Yes. Talk to your local area coordinator, early childhood partner or planner to work out what evidence we need to fund your podiatry and foot care supports.
If you have a podiatry care plan, we may ask for a copy. We’ll also ask for any other assessments or reports about your foot care supports.
During your planning meeting, we’ll ask you, your family, or carers to explain how your disability affects your ability to manage your podiatry and foot care.
We’ll ask you what podiatry and foot care supports you currently get. We’ll ask who you get your supports from, and how often you get them. We’ll also ask what supports you might need but don’t have yet.
We’ll use this information to decide if the podiatry and foot care supports you need, meet the NDIS funding criteria.
If they do, we’ll work out the amount of funding for podiatry and foot care supports to include in your plan.
What if you don’t agree with our decision?
If we decide podiatry and foot care 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 podiatry and foot care 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.
