Home Physiotherapy – Is It Covered Under NDIS?

Posted By

In a simple answer, yes it is.

Physiotherapy services are included throughout your NDIS plan at different levels, capacities and budgets. Home physiotherapy exists as both ‘core support’ and ‘capacity building support’. Depending on your personal requirements and level of rehabilitation required, our support team can arrange a suitable NDIS plan that covers your mobile physiotherapy needs.

In this blog, we’ll cover some of the basics of what you need to know.


Where Can You Find Home Physiotherapy Under NDIS?

Under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you can have a physiotherapist visit you at home or any other facility that is convenient for you. You can find mobile physiotherapy sessions under the ‘Improved Daily Living’ section and within the Capacity Building budget of your NDIS plan.

If you choose to have a physiotherapist come to your home, any money spent from your own pocket will be reimbursed straight back to you – this is accessible and available to all eligible NDIS participants. If you’re not sure of your eligibility, feel free to chat to one of our team members at Priority Healthcare to find out more.


What Type of Home Physiotherapy Sessions Can I Receive As An NDIS Participant?

In the Capacity Building section of your plan, mobile physiotherapy is delivered as part of your daily rehabilitation, therapy and support; and is a means of developing greater life skills and daily independence.

Everyone on the NDIS has a set of unique needs that is customised according to their pain management concerns.


As a general rule of thumb, a standard physiotherapy session can include things such as:

  • Dry needling techniques
  • Falls prevention & awareness programs
  • Group Exercise Classes
  • Every resident receives an individual exercise program
  • Personal Hygiene & Complex Care Programs
  • One to one physiotherapy consultations
  • DVA funded physiotherapy consultations
  • Medicare funded physiotherapy consultations


If you’re struggling to get to a clinic on your own or you simply don’t have the physical strength to get from A to B, this is the best option for you. A mobile physiotherapist can assist with treating a range of chronic injury and pain in the comfort of your own home – ranging from muscular conditions, amputations, sporting injuries, post surgery rehabilitation and anything else that may affect general mobility on a day-to-day basis.

For those seeking respite from physical pain and injury, home physiotherapy visits can be very helpful for those on the NDIS and for enhancing general quality of life.


At Priority Healthcare, our goal is to deliver the best in treatments & advice for all participants on the NDIS.


If you are currently a registered NDIS participant with adequate funding, you can have a physiotherapist visit you at home, whether it’s weekly, fortnightly or monthly. If you’re currently not registered with an NDIS provider, please speak to one of our team members at Priority Healthcare and we will arrange a suitable time to discuss your personal requirements and get you on the right plan.


Many participants who choose  ‘home physiotherapy’ include those with the following disabilities:

  • Autism, Intellectual & Mental Disabilities
  • Sporting & Recreational Related Injuries
  • Stroke & Heart Issues
  • Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Scleroses, Dementia & Alzheimers
  • Physical Disability – Quadriplegia, Hemiplegia & Paraplegia
  • Down Syndrome


Our goal at Priority Healthcare is to be a market leader in servicing the aged care facilities of Melbourne.
