To allow the National Disability Insurance Agency to determine whether you meet the disability or early intervention access requirements, you may need to provide them with evidence of your disability. This includes information on what your disability is, how long it will last and its impact on your life.
You can provide evidence of your disability by having your treating doctor or specialist complete the Professional’s Report section in Part F of the Access Request Form, the NDIS Supporting Evidence Form or you can provide the same evidence in a different format, such as copies of existing assessments and reports. You may be able to request copies of your medical diagnosis and/or medical assessments from Centrelink or your current service provider.
If you choose not to use the Professional’s Report section in Part F of the Access Request Form or the NDIS Supporting Evidence Form, it is important that you make sure the information you provide contains the same information that the form collects.
If you are not sure whether you have enough information to support your access request, or you have trouble getting the information, the Agency may be able to help you.
