Do you find it difficult to navigate all of the NDIS forms and templates required to get the max out of your NDIS plan? Here is a quick review of some of the most typical forms you may need to access during the course of your plan, including the NDIS access request form and the NDIS change of circumstances form.
NDIS Access Request Form
You are required to submit the Access Request Form to apply for the NDIS. When you submit your access request, you might also need to provide additional supporting data. You will need to provide your contact information, personal information, information about your supporters, and information about your disability(ies) experience on these forms.
If the NDIS doesn’t already have enough information about your needs and you have been getting disability services, you might need to complete a Supporting Evidence Form.
You must submit an access request form if you don’t already receive other disability support services.
There are various methods for completing an Access Request Form. You have the option of completing the form over the phone. The NDIS representative will consult with you over the phone, asking you questions as you fill out the form.
In order to give the NDIS, the most details regarding your disability possible, you will also need to confer with your doctor or a specialist to submit the supporting evidence form at this step.
NDIS Supporting Evidence Form
You must get a NDIS Supporting Evidence form from the NDIS when making an application to access the NDIS. A general practitioner, specialist, or allied health professional must complete the form and provide documentation of your disability. This comprises:
- Information on diagnosis and treatment, such as a mental health plan or hospital discharge plan
- Functional evaluations such as carer statements or evaluations performed by allied healthcare staff
- Impact statements outlining the impact your disability has on your day-to-day life
NDIS Consent form
When working with NDIS, you will need to use the NDIS consent form quite early on. The NDIS consent form essentially serves as your standard consent, letting the NDIS share your information with other service providers like Greater Support Coordination, medical and allied health experts, or anyone else who may require access to it during the course of your NDIS plan.
There are two NDIS consent forms available:
- Form of consent for the NDIS to share your information
- Form of consent for a third party to act on your behalf
Form of consent for the NDIS to share your information
If you want to share your NDIS information with a person or an organisation of your choosing, you must use the consent for the NDIS to share your Information form.
- You agree that the NDIS may talk to a family member about your plan and describe how you can use your financing.
- The medical personnel treating you at a public hospital asks for specifics about your NDIS plan. They could use this information to help you get better and make appropriate discharge preparations.
- You asked for some assistance with technology so you could complete certain daily duties. The NDIS has requested additional information, and with your permission, it can consult with your therapist to determine what other proof we need.
Form of consent for a third party to act on your behalf
You can provide permission to another person or organisation (third party) to handle NDIS-related matters on your behalf by completing the Consent for a Third Party to Act on Your Behalf form. You can decide who is allowed to do this, its purpose, and how long it can last.
You may authorise a third party to act on your behalf for the following types of actions or procedures:
- a review of your plan, including any changes brought about by a change in circumstances
- to update your contact information or bank account information in your NDIS record, among other administrative changes.
NDIS Change of Circumstances Form
This form can be used by NDIS participants and those waiting for access decisions to submit information on changes in circumstances. If something is expected to occur or could potentially impact your access request, participant status, or plan, you are required to notify the NDIS. This could involve any substantial adjustments to your: living arrangements (for example, you intend to or have recently relocated your home, overseas, or permanently into aged care residential care); disability support requirements; informal support systems; compensation status (for instance, whether you seek for, receive, or are entitled to compensation for injuries); or needs for disability support.
It’s vital to keep in mind that particular NDIS forms and templates must be filled out a certain way and with a certain amount of information. In order to request access to the forms and templates you might need throughout the course of your plan, it is frequently better to coordinate with your LAC or contact the NDIS directly.
