NDIS Price Guide Changes
Friday 19 Jun 2020
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has completed its annual review of NDIS prices and released an updated Price Guide and Support Catalogue to apply from 1 July 2020. Some of the positive changes which the HSU asked for in its submission to the price review have been implemented, such as:
- Enabling providers to recoup 100% of the cost of cancelled services (up from 90%)
- Assuming that 100% of workers will be eligible for long service leave in recognition of portable long service leave schemes (up from 18%)
- Enabling providers to charge participants for the non-labour costs of travel, i.e. where a worker has to use their own vehicle to transport a participant.
Prices will be indexed following the Fair Work Commission’s decision in the Minimum Wage Case.
