The national roll out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme started on the 1 July 2016.
In the first year, three Victorian disability service areas will transition to the NDIS, including North East Melbourne, Central Highlands and Loddon.
From 1 July 2017 the NDIS will begin to be available in the service areas of Inner Gippsland, Ovens Murray, Western District, Inner East Melbourne, Outer East Melbourne, Hume Moreland and Bayside Peninsula.
From 1 July 2018 the NDIS will begin to be available in the service areas of Southern Melbourne, Brimbank Melton, Western Melbourne, Goulburn, Mallee and Outer Gippsland.
It is expected to take up to 12 months for eligible people with disability to enter the NDIS once roll out starts in an area.
