NDIS FUNDING DETAILS
NDIS provides funding to people who have a permanent and significant disability.
What is the NDIS and am I eligible?
There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. When it is fully rolled out, the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide about 460,000 Australians aged under 65, who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services. For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The NDIS can provide all people with disability with information and connections to services in their communities such as doctors, sporting clubs, support groups, libraries and schools, as well as information about what support is provided by each state and territory government. You can access further information via this link.

Invoice and Agreement Form

There are 3 ways to claim a product purchase funded by NDIS:
1. SELF MANAGED
If you are using self managed NDIS budgets, you will need to purchase the item from mCareWatch and pay us for the item, then claim the funds back from NDIS through the MyPlace Portal.
2. NDIS AGENCY MANAGED
If you are using NDIS managed budgets, you will need to get your Local Area Coordinator, Planner, or Support Coordinator to ensure the purchase amount is included in your plan.
We will need to know the ‘support budget or budget category’ they have approved the funds in and the ‘budget line item number’ they have allocated the funds to. Sometimes there is a $1,000 Assistive Technology budget, or we can claim from Consumables for low risk low cost AT. If you have this we can generally claim directly from that portion.
3. THIRD PARTY PLAN MANAGED
If you are managed by a third party plan manager, then we can invoice the plan manager, and then they claim from NDIS.

Your device is all setup and delivered to your nominated address ready to use. A follow up call from our Customer Care team will be made to ensure the device has been received and to answer any questions you may have.

“My son has been wearing the mCareWatch since December 2015 and it has saved his life a couple of times.”
“There was some initial reluctance about wearing it because it was something new, but once he saw that the other kids consider it just another cool device there was no going back.”
“I am very happy with the mCareWatch and think it is a wonderful product. My husband has dementia and is wearing the watch every day and I now feel a little more peace of mind knowing that he is wearing the watch. I am able to find out where he is through my mobile app and also call him and the watch automatically answers when I call which is great as he doesn’t need to remember to press any buttons on the watch.”
There are a number of funding options that you might want to consider depending on your personal circumstances.
