Reasonable and necessary criteria

To have a support (eg vehicle modifications) funded by the NDIS, it needs to meet the "reasonable and necessary criteria" outlined in the NDIS Act.

There are 6 criteria:

- will help you to pursue (and achieve) the goals in your NDIS Plan

- will facilitate social and economic participation

- the support is value for money

- the support will be effective and beneficial

- takes into account reasonable expectations of informal supports

- most appropriately funded by NDIS

 

Your driving OT will discuss these criteria with you to be able to address these in the application.
