Will NDIS pay for cleaning?

Complex jargon used by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can sometimes be difficult to understand. Many people are confused about what exactly they can and can’t use their NDIS plan funds for.
Luckily, In Home Advantage – an NDIS registered specialist cleaning provider offering services with a smile – are here to make things easier for you.

What is and isn’t covered?

There is a support category in an NDIS plan called ‘Assistance with Daily Living’, which provides participants with the following services: domestic cleaning, in-home laundry, housekeeping, gardening, and house maintenance.
However, the NDIS will cover such services only if the support is considered necessary and reasonable. In other words, your disability should be directly related to the service needed. Provided that you meet the criteria and have a budget assigned to this category, you can use one or all of these supports.
On the other hand, if you are considered able to complete such tasks, the NDIS won’t pay for the service.

NDIS registered VS unregistered cleaning providers

NDIS registered cleaning providers offer their services to all self-managed, plan-managed, and NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) – managed users. Luckily, In Home Advantage provides exceptional service to participants, providing a clean and tidy living space for thousands of Victorians.
There are also unregistered providers for the same services that can be used if you are self or plan-managed. However, the quality of the service you get cannot compare to that from an NDIS registered provider. Why? Because if the provider isn’t registered, they aren’t obliged to follow the quality and safeguards requirements from the NDIS Commission.

Payment of services

If you are an NDIA managed participant, you don’t have to worry about managing payments for covered services. Once you have your service agreement reviewed and signed, all payment requests are directly sent to the NDIA. If you are self-managed, the payment requests will be sent to you. If you are plan-managed, payment requests will be sent to your plan manager.
Living in a clean and safe environment is of the utmost importance. If you want to enjoy the time spent in your home but aren’t capable of performing the chores yourself, you might consider hiring a cleaning provider.
