The NDIS will roll out early for existing Queensland Government disability services users in Ipswich, Lockyer, Scenic Rim, Somerset, Bundaberg and the area of Rockhampton, Gladstone and west to the borders.
The National Disability Insurance Agency can approve NDIS plans for users of existing Queensland Government disability services now in the Ipswich transition area, from 1 September 2017, in Bundaberg, and from 1 November 2017, in the Rockhampton transition area - up to two months earlier than originally planned.
Requests to access the NDIS will open in each region ahead of time. Access requests are being accepted now in the Ipswich area and in Bundaberg, and will be accepted from 1 July 2017 in the Rockhampton transition area.
