20 July 2017

A monitor with a person holding out a spanner, and an NDIS plan.An NDIS Appeal is the second step you can take if you are unhappy with a decision the NDIS has made, and have already tried step 1. Step 1 is to seek an 'internal review of a reviewable decision' from the NDIA.

If that didn't work, you can do an NDIS Appeal. 'NDIS Appeals' used to be called 'External Merit Reviews'. Here's a list of disability advocacy organisations from across Australia that can help you with an NDIS Appeal.
