- participate annually in an Agency-approved market benchmarking survey.
Health Supports & the NDIS
The Disability Reform Council has published a communique from its most recent meeting and a Health Related Supports Factsheet. The factsheet provides some good news for people who use CPAP and BiPAP machines and other "disability-related health supports where the supports are a regular part of the participant’s daily life, and result from the participant’s disability."
