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

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.

We may ask you or someone else to give us evidence to show the support meets the NDIS funding criteria.

This could include your pressure care plan or wound management plan. Or any reports from your doctor, allied health professionals or nurses responsible for the care of your wounds.

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 wound and pressure care by yourself.

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.
