Another concerning story about the deeply flawed NDIS system recently surfaced.
Over $ 400, 000 for one individual. And he is worse off.
I have posted my views about the NDIS before. It is a deeply flawed scheme. This unfortunate man now has $400K in funding yet his care deteriorates.
Despite all the rhetoric about patient choices etc. it is simply one massive money grab for ruthless entrepreneurs who sees it as easy money.
The most frightening aspect as that all the State & Federal services that used to provide theses services are now shut down with list skills & facilities. There is nothing to go back to when the NDIS runs out of funds – as if surely will.
We are used to seeing media storms about privatisation in healthcare and education. The sentiment against it is a valid concern for the viability of the process and exploitation of the vulnerable.
Why on earth are we not concerned about these same issues when we privatise the card of the disabled ?
There is one bucket of money for the task. A Task that can look after everyone for a long time if we used bicycles & biros to do it. Instead we are using the money to employ slick salesmen who are selling Porches and Parker pens, supplied by their Mates, and will do a magnificent task.
Until the Porsche needs a service and there s no technician around or funding left.
