    8. You can only receive services you have signed up to in this Agreement. See section 6 ‘What if you need to change your Agreement with us?’ in the Terms and Conditions if you would like to add another service to your Agreement.
  1. What is not included in the price of this service?

Staff may travel to you to provide face to face support. Travel is an additional cost and will be charged to your Individual Living Options funding package.

Travel costs that will be charged for face to face appointments are:

  • staff time taken to travel to and from the appointment
  • kilometres travelled to and from the appointment are charged at the rate on your Northcott My Service Agreement Fees and Charges
  • parking (if required)
  • tolls (if there are any on route to and from the appointment).

By law, Northcott must report to the government if we think a person is being abused or neglected. If we need to do this for you, we will charge the time it takes to your NDIS Plan.

  1. What the NDIA says is reasonable and necessary:

In order to be considered reasonable and necessary, a support must:

  • be related to the participant’s disability
  • not include day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s disability support needs
  • represent value for money
  • be likely to be effective and beneficial to the participant, and take into account informal supports given to participants by families, carers, networks, and the community.
