NDIS Funding

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a way of providing people with disability choice and control over their lives and the supports they need to live the life they want.

Coloplast as an NDIS provider

Coloplast is now a registered NDIS provider and will be able to support you directly in ordering your Coloplast continence products via our Coloplast Care Direct service using your NDIS funds. 

Funding types

There are three ways you can arrange to have your NDIS funds managed.

Self-managed

This is where you manage your own NDIS funding. You can apply to the NDIA to provide you with funding so that you can access the support you need to achieve your goals.  

If you are self-managed, you may wish to pay out of pocket using your credit card or you may wish to request a quote from Coloplast to submit to the NDIA to be reimbursed in advance of payment. If this is the case, once you have received your NDIS funding, please log back into your Coloplast account and complete your order.

Plan-managed

This is where an organisation, also known as a Plan Manager, supports you to manage your NDIS plan. The NDIA will provide funding in your plan to pay your Plan Manager, who will pay your chosen provider on your behalf. Your Plan Manager will assist you in keeping track of your funds and is responsible for the financial reporting of your spending. 

If you are plan-managed and we do not have an existing service booking, we will contact your plan manager to process your order. If this order fits within an existing service booking you have with us, then there is no further action required and we will process your order as normal unless we have any questions. 

NDIA-managed 

This is also called Agency-managed. The NDIA pays your chosen provider on your behalf and will manage your funding while being responsible for the financial reporting of your spending. 

If you are NDIA-managed, you can provide us with your NDIS reference number when you checkout, which we will input into the NDIS provider portal to search for the budget allocation available for you to order continence consumables. If a budget allocation has been made, we will submit a payment request to the NDIS for the order amount. We will contact you if we encounter difficulties with your NDIA-managed funds (for example, if we find that there is no budget allocation). If your order fits within an existing service booking you have with us, then there is no further action required and we will process your order as normal unless we have any questions.
