NDIS roll out in Tasmania

NDIS roll out in Tasmania

NDIS-Tas

From 1 July 2016, eligible people in Tasmania will start entering the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) carefully managed and well supported way.

NDIS is expected to be operating state-wide by July 2019, ultimately providing support to 10,500 Tasmanians.

In Tasmania, the Scheme will be progressively rolled out, by age, over 3 years, with specific age groups on dates as shown below:

0 – 3yrs — 1 July 2018
4 – 11 — 1 July 2017
12 – 14 — 1 July 2016
15 – 24 — Current
25 – 28 —  1 Jan 2017
29 – 34 — 1 Jan 2018
35 – 49 — 1 July 2018
50 – 64 — 1 Jan 2019

By 1 July 2019, all eligible Tasmanians, from birth to age 64, will become NDIS participants.

Eligible residents in shared supported accommodation will access the NDIS together on a house-by-house basis.

Tasmanian Gateway Services will assist people to connect with services and prepare for the NDIS.

Existing Commonwealth and state-based services and supports will continue until eligible people with disability start their NDIS plan.
