Eligible NDIS participants can use funding from their NDIS plan to purchase Antigen Rapid tests and receive support in the COVID_19 pandemic. This statement has been confirmed by the minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
“Antigen Rapid test kits are considered important tools to ensure that disability-related support will continue to be accessible to the participants.” The minister said. Thus, NDIS participants can ensure their continuity of services and support by claiming Antigen Rapid tests.
The Commonwealth has commenced a program to provide concession card holders including the majority of NDIS participants with free Antigen Rapid self tests.
The temporary NDIS program aiming at providing safe support for participants is to enable eligible supported independent living (SIL) participants and providers to claim up to $12.50 per Antigen Rapid test.
