NDIS Price Guide
NDIS Price Guide 2019 – 20 (As of 25 March 2020)
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to participants to access reasonable and necessary supports to increase independence and promote choice and control.
Deaf Children Australia uses the same prices as these outlined in the NDIS Price Guide.
NDIS Price Guide 2019 – 2020 - effective 25 March 2020
The NDIA has published documents that relate to the supply and cost of supports under the NDIS.
These documents contains policy information and guidance for Providers, Support Coordinators, Plan Managers and Participants.
NDIS Support Catalogue 2019 – 2020 - effective 25 March 2020
These documents contains the NDIS Price List, which contains the price limits, support categories, descriptions and line items. This helps identify what is claimable under the NDIS.
Cancellation charges - changes due to the COVID-19 Pandemic
NDIA has changed the definition of short notice cancellations from 25 March 2020.
Deaf Children Australia has not changed it's cancellation policy from 48 business hours (2 business days).
Providers can only claim for a cancellation if they have not found alternative billable work for the relevant worker and are required to pay the worker for the time that would have been spent providing the support.
Temporary increase to price limits
The NDIA will temporarily increase price limits by 10 per cent for the following critical supports, effective 25 March 2020:
Assistance with Daily Life (not including Supported Independent Living)
Assistance with Social and Community Participation
Improved Health and Wellbeing (not including personal training)
Improved Daily Living Skills
These changes start from 25 March and will be in place for six months. The NDIA will review this change in three months to assess if the changes continue to be appropriate.
Participant plans are being automatically extended to ensure they continue to have access to funding.
Three support coordination items have been duplicated in the support catalogue under Core Supports, Assistance with Daily Life, effective 25 March 2020. The 10 per cent increase in price limits is not applicable to support coordination items.
Participants who do not have a separate category in their plan for Support Coordination will now be able to use these supports from their Core funds. This is regardless of whether participants are Self-Managed, Plan-Managed, or Agency-Managed.
Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP)
In 2019, the NDIA introduced the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) which is used to assist providers who meet specific criteria, including registration to the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission to continue transforming their business to move towards a more competitive marketplace, without compromising quality of service. Deaf Children Australia is committed to transformation in the sector and high quality service delivery and is eligible for the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) for applicable services.
