If your funding for supports is Agency-managed, you can only use ‘NDIS registered providers’ for those supports. NDIS registered providers meet strict conditions for the quality and safety of their services. Learn more on the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission website.
Some supports can only be provided by NDIS registered providers. These include:
- Specialist Behaviour Supports , if the provider will undertake a behaviour support assessment or develop a behaviour support plan
- any support that will likely involve a regulated restricted practice , either on an interim or ongoing basis
- Plan Management
- Specialist Disability Accommodation.
You must use NDIS registered providers for these supports, even if your plan doesn’t say you need to. You must also use NDIS registered providers for these supports even if your funding is self-managed or plan-managed.
