Western Australia to sign on to DisabilityCare

Date posted: 5 August 2013

The whole country is now covered by the National disability insurance scheme, DisabilityCare, with WA being the last state to come on board.

Western Australia will have two trial sites. One of the sites will be a continuation of My Way, which is the WA system that allows people with a disability to select the services they want from mostly not-for-profit organisations.

Premier of WA, Mr Barnett said the trial site for My Way would be in the South West region and the Kwinana-Cockburn area. The Commonwealth's system would be conducted in Midland, the Perth Hills area and adjoining suburbs.

'I think at the end of the day, we will learn something from both sites and it will play an important role in the way in which disability services are ultimately provided right across Australia,' Mr Barnett said.
