The National Injury Insurance Scheme
The National Injury Insurance Scheme (NIIS) was established in tandem with the National Disability Insurance scheme (NDIS) to provide lifetime care and support to people who have sustained catastrophic injury.
In Queensland, this scheme is executed by the National Insurance Agency Queensland (NIISQ Agency) and provides necessary and reasonable lifetime treatment, care and support to those who sustain eligible personal injuries in a motor vehicle accident, on or after 1 July 2016.
The NIISQ Agency works in partnership with a range of service providers to deliver treatment, care and support to NIISQ participants. Some service providers are required to be registered with the NIISQ Agency.
What does this mean for Occupational Therapists?
The NIISQ Agency is only looking for case management services through this process.
- OTs are not required to be registered with NIISQ to deliver individual treatment or assessments
- OTS are required to register with NIISQ if they wish to provide case management services (i.e coordination of treatment, care and support) for NIISQ participants
- There is no requirement for OTs to be registered with the NDIS in order to apply for NIISQ registration. Please see Addendum 1 clarifying this statement.
The NIISQ Agency Service Provider Standards are available to download through QTenders by clicking here. Pages 21 to 25 outline the requirements for services for the coordination of treatment, care or support (i.e. case management).
