The Administrative Appeals Tribunal is the ultimate testing ground for all things NDIS, which makes it extremely exciting when we see cases like PM v NDIS that cover an exceptional amount of ground. In the first of this two part series, Sara explores the exciting implications rulings from the case will have for providers and Participants.
