MASS and the NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing supports for people with disability to live in the community and take part in everyday activities. For eligible participants, this will mean changes to the way they currently access supports from schemes such as the Medical Aids Subsidy Scheme (MASS). Find out more.

Workshops are being held to provide information on the NDIS. Find further information on the NDIS website.

The Spectacle Supply Scheme guidelines will be changed effective from the 1st of July 2017.

From that date, access to the scheme will only be available once every two years. Access to the scheme inside the two year eligibility period will be removed, regardless of any clinical change in eyesight.
