As of June 2016, funding for some of the equipment currently provided through EnableNSW moved to the NDIS as the Scheme is rolled out. We expect this to be a slow transition, and anticipate it will be ‘business as usual’ for our programs over the next 12-24 months.
Importantly, beyond the rollout of the NDIS, EnableNSW will continue to fulfil an important role for the NSW health system.
There are approximately 26,000 people currently being assisted by EnableNSW who will not be eligible for the NDIS, either due to their age or health condition. Many of our services, including the funding of respiratory consumables and equipment (such as oxygen concentrators), will continue to be available to people of all ages.
For any supplier enquiries, please contact the Business Support and Vendor Manager on 1800 362 253.
