NDIS in WA
WA to join the nationally-delivered NDIS
On 12 December 2017, the Commonwealth and Western Australian governments agreed that WA will join the nationally delivered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This announcement replaces the previous agreement signed in January 2017 for Western Australia to administer the NDIS. From 1 July 2018, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will assume responsibility for the delivery of the NDIS in Western Australia. The NDIS will continue to be implemented on a geographic basis by NDIA and will be fully rolled out across WA by 2020.
All current participants in the WA NDIS will transfer to the nationally delivered Scheme from April 2018 until 31 December 2018. http://www.disability.wa.gov.au/wa-ndis/wa-ndis/
