What is the NDIS Price Guide?
The NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) sets price limits for disability supports received by NDIS participants. These are outlined in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits for 2022-23 (previously known as the NDIS Price Guide).
Updated Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits are released from time to time, when relevant impacts warrant changes.
Here is what the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits for 2022-23 means for you as an NDIS participant:
Price limit increases
From 1st July 2022, price limits for all NDIS supports delivered by disability support workers are going to increase by 9 percent, including a 2 percent temporary loading in 2022-23 (reviewed annually).
The good news is that participants’ plans will be indexed and all current NDIS plan budgets will be automatically increased to account for these price limit changes.
You’ll start to see changes to price caps from 1st July 2022.
Changes to travel charges
Support workers may also charge for two-way travel if you’re located in a regional or remote area. They must inform you about the travel charges and gain your agreement before the travel occurs.
The maximum time that can be billed per trip is 30 minutes (60 minutes return), or 60 minutes (120 minutes return) according to the remoteness of the location.
