What type of community nursing does the ndis fund?

High Intensity Community Nursing Care is provided to NDIS participants who have complex needs that require their Carers to have medical training and experience.  This includes accredited professional nurses.  The types of services that can be included in a NDIS plan are those that help you to live independently. This is referred to as ‘capacity building’ – ie the care provided must contribute to your independence or build up your skills towards independence.

Some of the situations where this extra level of support it required includes:

  • Behaviour support needs
  • Very limited communication
  • Medical procedures such as ventilation, urinary catheter management  and enteral feeding

To be eligible for NDIS funding the community nursing care must:

  • Be related to your disability 
  • Assist with your long term wellbeing 
  • Be delivered by a qualified nurse and 
  • Be limited in time

When the NDIS won’t fund community nursing services include:

  • The care required is not directly related to your disability. 
  • It can be funded under the state health care system
  • The care provided is not considered capacity building
  • It does not need a qualified nurse to provide the care
