The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission has taken action against two Victorian-based businesses for making fake and inappropriate claims for payments to the NDIS. Five people associated with them were also issued banning orders, with prohibitions ranging from five to 10 years.

Millennium Disability Care and A.C.N. 615 641 079, that operated as a disability accommodation platform to help NDIS participants find homes have been permanently prohibiting from providing NDIS supports and services to people with disability.

The banning orders against these entities sends a strong message to any provider trying to take advantage of the NDIS and Australian taxpayers, NDIS Minister Bill Shorten said. “The Fraud Fusion Taskforce’s work is well underway and any provider looking to rip off the NDIS should know the music has stopped.”

NDIS Commissioner Tracy Mackey said the Commission will take “swift action where NDIS providers and their key personnel fail to meet their obligations in circumstances where they are no longer suitable to deliver NDIS supports and services”.

Details of compliance actions taken can be read on the NDIS Commission website.
