There are generally 3 ways to claim a product purchase funded by NDIS.

  1. SELF MANAGED: If the participant is using self managed NDIS budgets, you will need to purchase the item from TabTimer and pay us for the item, then claim the funds back from NDIS through the MyPlace Portal.
  2. NDIS AGENCY MANAGED: If you are using NDIS managed budgets, you will need to get your Local Area Coordinator, Planner, or Support Coordinator to ensure the purchase amount is included in the participants plan and get them to provide approval for us to make the claim.  We will need to know the 'support budget or budget category' they have approved the funds in and the 'budget line item number' they have allocated the funds to. Usually, there is a $1,000 Assistive Technology budget. If they have this we can generally claim directly from that pool.
  3. THIRD PARTY PLAN MANAGED: If the client is managed by a third party plan manager, then the plan manager usually needs to order from us and pay us, and then they claim from NDIS.
