NDIS forgets those over 65

The Government's National Disability Insurance Scheme has been sold as a scheme "for all Australians" - yet those Aussies who sustain an injury or illness which leaves them with a disability after the age of 65 are simply not eligible to be covered by the scheme, while those who suffer a disability before the age of 65 are still covered by the scheme into their later years of life.


The NDIS scheme will be funded by an increase to the Medicare levy, and comes into effect July 1, 2014.


What are your opinions on the NDIS, its funding and eligability criteria. - have your say in the comments section below.
