National Disability Insurance Scheme Costs: Carers Victoria submission to the Productivity Commission

Carers Victoria's submission to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Costs Issues Paper.

Carers Victoria would like to acknowledge the work of the Productivity Commission in tackling a wicked problem, a chronically ‘underfunded, unfair, fragmented and inefficient’ disability services system, viewing it through a human rights lens and devising a fiscally pragmatic Scheme based on consumer choice to stimulate market competition and insurance principles.

As the NDIS rapidly approaches full rollout, it is now more important than ever to ensure the vision for the Scheme is realised and NDIS core values are not compromised as the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) tries to keep pace with an ambitious transition schedule to achieve full rollout by 2019.

Carers Victoria acknowledges the traditional owners of this land and pays respect to elders both past and present.
