PEOPLE have until March 23 to comment on the rules that will guide the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

The Federal Government released the scheme's draft rules on Tuesday.

Community Services Minister Jenny Macklin said the rules provided more detail on how the NDIS, a bill for which is before the Parliament, would work.

This includes how people with disability will be able to access the scheme, and how the agency will determine what supports are reasonable to meet a person's needs.

The rules also provide a guide to what kinds of supports will be funded, and what supports are best delivered by other systems of support, like the health or education systems.

You can have your say on the rules at http://yoursay.ndis.gov.au/.
