NDIS explained - registered provider vs unregistered what is means for you client.
To put it simply, a registered service provider is someone who has registered their services and has been approved by the NDIS as a service provider. An unregistered service provider, has not completed this approval process but can still offer a valid service to participants.
To summarise, the main differences between registered and unregistered providers are: Unregistered providers working with self-managing participants are free to set their prices, whereas registered providers must adhere to the NDIS price caps You can access unregistered providers only when you have a plan-managed or self-managed NDIS plan.
What exactly is Choice and control - how it affects you?
What is choice and control in NDIS funding?
