The Direct Employment Program was available to recipients who received an Individual Support Package from the former Victorian Department of Health (formerly the Department of Health and Human Services).

The Direct Employment Program ended on 30 June 2021, as part of the transition of disability services to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

What cover does VMIA provide to direct employers?

VMIA doesn’t provide cover to direct employers.

For advice regarding commercial insurance, please contact an independent professional insurance broker. VMIA is unable to provide advice on alternative insurance arrangements.
