NDIS Plans for severe disabilities

We're waiting for MsO to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

I have noticed that the cost of care for people with severe disabilities is extremely high just to get their basic needs met. Why do this demographic need to go through a number of levels within the NDIA for approval of their plans and plan reviews when their level of disability indicates a high cost care already? Is it the total cost of their supports or the percentage increase that requires another level of approval?

Has any research been conducted regarding the impact of these delays on the person's quality of life and longer term functioning after each delay in receiving adequate funding? Have death rates of people with disability that were not adequately funded been recorded or suicide rates of peoplw with disability or their carers? I know of 2 mothers (carers) in the last 18 months who killed themselves during plan reviews.

Why do people with severe disability experience extensive delays in hearing their outcomes of plan reviews NDIA when they are the most vulnerable of the disability community? Is it because they cant complainant? Have there been any changes between 1 June 2016 until 1 April 2021 to address the concerns I have raised?

Yours faithfully,
Ms O.

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

I am unclear regarding your automated responses to my question, whether or not you are going to answer my question? This is deeply upsetting given the serious issues I have raised regarding the current NDIS processes in general. My question does not relate to a specific plan. I would like a response that is not automated please.

Yours faithfully,

MsO
