NDIS Price Guide Revised

The pricing in the Support Catalogue has now been amended so that the group rates do indeed increase. The most accurate version of the Support Catalogue is now 1.1.

Major Changes to the New Price Guide published on Disability Services Consulting website.
This article provides some clarification regarding adjustment to individual participants available funds which will not include the TTP (Temporary Transformation Payment) and more. 

TTP Defined
Regarding the Temporary Transformation Payment - only registered providers can claim the TTP. To be eligible for the TTP providers are required to do the following
  • publish their service prices;
  • list their business contact details in the Provider Finder and ensure those details are kept up-to-date; and
  • participate annually in an Agency-approved market benchmarking survey.
To continue reading about the TTP go to pages 12-13 in the Price Guide 2019-2020 Download PDF or Word document.

Health Supports & the NDIS
The Disability Reform Council has published a communique from its most recent meeting and a Health Related Supports Factsheet. The factsheet provides some good news for people who use CPAP and BiPAP machines and other "disability-related health supports where the supports are a regular part of the participant’s daily life, and result from the participant’s disability."
Communique from the Reform Council available from the DSS website 

For all people who are nominees - please check that you have been appointed correctly and have your appointment letter from the NDIA. We are still hearing of people who still have not had the appointment formally made ie they are not in receipt of a "copy of the instrument of nominee appointment".
For details regarding the issue see Nominees Operational Guideline - Appointment of Nominees.
