Introduction to Multiple Sclerosis

Will NDIS pay for Multiple Sclerosis Assessment?
What Can NDIS Fund For Multiple Sclerosis?
The NDIS funds several critical services for people with Multiple Sclerosis. These include speech and occupational therapy, physiotherapy, personal care support, nutritional support, and behavioural support. NDIS funding can even pay for a Support Worker to assist you or your loved one at home. Plan Management and Support Coordination Funding are almost always offered to NDIS Participants when they receive their plan. The types and amounts of funding available are determined partly by the level of severity.
For children younger than seven years of age, NDIS funding provides early interventions, takes a family-centred approach, and helps families connect with Multiple Sclerosis services providers. At Maple, we can assist you or your loved one with the NDIS application to receive your or your loved one’s needed funding.
Is Multiple Sclerosis Covered by the NDIS?
If you or your loved one suffers from Multiple Sclerosis it is covered under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), and you may be eligible for funding to avail of our support services.
Multiple Sclerosis is in the List B category of NDIS eligibility and is assessed on a case by case basis rather than according to the specific diagnosis. First and foremost, you need to meet the basic eligibility criteria laid out by the NDIS. If you need the support from another person on a daily basis or use special equipment and require support to help reduce the impact of your disability, then you’re likely to be approved for funding.
At Maple, we can assist you in the assessment process to see if you or your loved one qualifies for NDIS Multiple Sclerosis benefits. If you or your loved one meets the criteria, we have the capacity to provide comprehensive services to maximise your quality of life.
