MS patient entitled to sex therapist under NDIS

A tribunal ruled that the therapist was a 'reasonable and necessary support' for the woman

An MS patient is entitled to claim for sex therapy under the National Disability Insurance Scheme after a tribunal found her mental, emotional and physical wellbeing would be improved by the treatment.

The woman, in her 40s, had applied for a sexual therapist to be funded under her NDIS plan, but the request had been refused.
