In a recent interview Joe Hockey said the government was considering abolishing or scaling back the agency established to administer the NDIS and hand the role to Medibank Private.
So what does this mean for the future of the NDIS?
Hockey says the Government is committed to the NDIS but that it just doesn’t want ‘another massive bureaucracy’ set up to run it.
Labor and the Greens have reacted furiously saying this signals a winding up of the NDIS.
What do you think about Hockey’s comments? Is handing administration over to Medibank Private a sensible decision or the beginning of the end?
