AAT NDIS Decision Digest

The Winter 2019 edition is now available. This digest provides summaries of Administrative Appeals Tribunal decisions abour the NDIS. It is prepared by the Living with Disability Research Centre at La Trobe University. Always good reading.

The issue highlights the following
  • The need for a proper and balanced use of operational guidelines
  • Downsides of flexible use of funding
  • The health system and the NDIS interface
  • The importance of impairment
  • Availability and access do not affect ‘availability’ of treatment
