Participant Planning Questions

We're waiting for Mark to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear National Disability Insurance Agency,

1. How many plans were reassessed in the last financial year (30 June2021)
2. How many APS employees did the NDIA have as at 31 December 2021 to review Participant Plans?
3. Can you please provide the typical support packages by age group/disability/state or overall?
4. How do you determine the typical support packages are reasonable and necessary and how often is this reviewed? What is the evidence that is used to determine TSPs
5. How many plans does the NDIA manage (NDIA-managed plans) as at 31 December 2021?
6. How many NDIA planners does the NDIA have as at 31 December 2021.
7. What is the information and evidence required to determine a participant’s core support budget and how is this benchmarked against the TSP?

Yours faithfully,

Mark
