NDIS: COAG council meeting to discuss major IT setbacks in insurance roll-out

The COAG Disability Reform Council is meeting to discuss major IT setbacks that have slowed the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

The ABC has seen a draft communique from today’s meeting which concedes that the NDIS is behind schedule and that the delays have been “unacceptable”.

The new NDIS MyPlace online portal has been plagued with problems, leaving thousands of people without approved care plans, which would give them access to health care and equipment.

The MyPlace glitches will be the main item on the agenda at the COAG Disability Reform Council meeting in Sydney.

It is the first meeting of state and territory disability ministers since the NDIS moved from a trial to a full national roll-out.
