How do you get wound and pressure care supports in your plan?

Do you need to provide us with evidence?

Yes. To get wound and pressure 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 with you.

We’ll ask about what wound and pressure care 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. You may need quotes for particular wound care consumables or prevention supports, for example, dressings or a pressure relief cushion.

We’ll use this information to decide if wound and pressure care 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 wound and pressure care supports you need.

What if you don’t agree with our decision?

If we decide wound and pressure 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 wound and pressure 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.
