The NDIS What disabilities does NDIS cover

NDIS list of disabilities covered and how it works

What disabilities are likely to meet NDIS access requirements? We'll break it down so it’s easy to understand.
What disabilities does the NDIS cover?

Roughly 4.3 million Australians have a disability. Each year, around 500,000 people access NDIS support. For some, this is the first time they have received the help they need. NDIS access makes it possible for people to thrive. It can mean improved mental health, social interaction, and daily life.

It's important to understand the access criteria and see if you qualify for NDIS funding when you need help. Covered conditions fall into two main lists.

List A includes conditions likely to meet NDIS disability requirements.

List B are permanent conditions that affect functional capacity and need further assessment. Below are some examples of these.

A comprehensive list can be found on the NDIS website.
