It’s that time of year again: the latest NDIS price guide has just been released. So, what’s changed and how might these changes impact you? Released on July 1 of every year, the NDIS price guide lays out everything you need to know about how supports can be funded for the next 12 months.
The good news is this year’s price guide contains very few changes. In fact, the biggest update is to its name, which is now the NDIS Price Arrangements and Price Limits. It’s a bit of a mouthful, so for this article we’ll keeping calling it the price guide. Let’s break down what you need to know.
How has the 2021-22 price guide changed from the 2020-21 price guide?
Aside from the usual small adjustments to price limits that happen every year, there are only two key updates you should be aware of:
- The Temporary Transformation Payment loading, which was introduced to help service providers transition to the NDIS, has been reduced by 1.5%.
- The transitional pricing arrangements for group-based supports have been extended for 12 months.
As with the last couple of updates, participants won’t get an increase to their budgets to account for any of the new price limits. This is likely to be a disappointment to some, so if you’re concerned about your budgets give us a call. We’re here to help.
