The NDIS has recently implemented significant changes to its pricing arrangements and limits, effective from July 1, 2021.

  • Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA): Price limits for SDA have increased by 1.1%, mirroring the consumer price index change.
  • Temporary Transformation Payment: This has decreased from 6% to 4.5%, aligning with previous announcements.
  • Transitional Pricing Arrangements: Providers can utilize the transitional pricing for group-based supports for an additional 12 months.
  • Review Report on Supported Independent Living (SIL) Pricing Arrangements: SIL price limits are recommended to stay aligned with Assistance with Daily Living price limits.

We closely monitor plan utilization to ensure uninterrupted support for participants nearing their plan end date.

Participants concerned about pricing changes affecting their plan funds can request a plan review by contacting the National Contact Centre.

The NDIA plays a pivotal role in setting price limits, fostering market growth, and ensuring high-quality support delivery. These pricing arrangements prioritize reasonable value for participants’ plan funds, fostering innovation and quality.
