At Apex our Exercise Physiologists are all NDIS approved providers and have extensive experience in conducting services within this scheme.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers.

The NDIS supports people with disability to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment. As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.

The NDIS can pay for supports that are reasonable and necessary. This means they are related to a person’s disability and are required for them to live an ordinary life and achieve their goals.

Can I access the NDIS? To become an NDIS participant a person must:

  • Have a permanent disability that significantly affects their ability to take part in everyday activities;
  • Be aged less than 65 when they first enter the NDIS;
  • Be an Australian citizen or hold a permanent visa or a Protected Special Category visa; and
  • Live in Australia where the NDIS is available


The reasonable and necessary supports in your plan are divided into separate support budgets which link to an area of your life in which you have goal(s).

Each support budget will have an allocated amount to spend on achieving an outcome against your goal(s). The funds allocated to one budget cannot be swapped to any other budget in your plan.

You cannot spend over the total amount allocated to each budget and the amount allocated will not change during your current plan.

Your plan must have funding allocated to the below support categories in order to access Exercise Physiology or Personal Training Services.
