The NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission has taken compliance action against Sydney-based NDIS providers and two people associated with them.
Fine Care Pty Ltd and AlliedHealth Cleaning Services Pty Ltd have been issued suspension notices, prohibiting them from providing NDIS supports and services as registered NDIS providers for a period.
Two people associated with the providers have also been issued banning orders, prohibiting them from being involved in the provision of NDIS supports or services to people with disability for two years. A third person, associated with another Western Sydney provider, has also been suspended.
In coordination with the National Disability Insurance Agency and the Fraud Fusion Taskforce, the NDIS Commission took action after obtaining evidence of the submission of falsified and inappropriate claims for payment to the NDIS.
Hopeful Ability Care Pty Ltd has also been issued with a suspension notice prohibiting it from providing NDIS supports and services as a registered NDIS provider for a period of 30 days. A person associated with the provider has been issued with a banning order prohibiting him from being involved in the provision of NDIS supports or services to people with disability for two years.
The NDIS Commission has also issued notices of intention to make further banning orders of a further six people and entities and revoke the registration of three NDIS providers.
