Our exercise physiologist Jack is registered with the NDIS.
Jack is available to provide exercise rehabilitation services for those eligible for funding under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Within a participant’s NDIS funding package, exercise physiology services come under the category of “Capacity Building Budget, and under the sub-category of “Health and Well Being”.
Participants receiving services under the NDIS have three ways of paying for exercise physiology services, depending on their NDIS plan:
Self-management – the NDIA will pay you so you can pay your exercise physiologist upfront
Plan-management – the NDIA will provide funding in your plan for a Plan Manager who pays for the exercise physiology services for you
NDIA-managed – the NDIA will pay your exercise physiologist on your behalf
NDIS-funded exercise physiology bookings have a duration of 1 hour, and can be provided as one-on-one consultations or group booking. Participants can also request for exercise physiology services to be provided at home, depending on the details of their plan.
If you are an NDIS participant looking for exercise physiology services, feel free to call the clinic on 5253 2345 or come into the clinic at 63 High st, Drysdale.
