Very remote price guide

This Guide provides details of the types of supports participants can purchase with their NDIS funding.

Support categories

The table below shows the names of support categories that may appear in a participant’s plan. Participants who are managing their own funds can use the support category number shown in the table below when claiming in the NDIS Participant Portal.

For details of the types of supports, prices and item numbers for supports under each support category, refer to the relevant list.

NOTE: 22/9/15: This CSV document has been updated; support category names and numbers are included as a result of feedback from providers. Otherwise, the files remain unchanged. It is not essential that you download the new version of the CSV file, however the additional information may assist with managing supports.

Support Clusters

Organisations or individuals apply to be a registered provider with the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to deliver a group of support items in a support cluster. This simplifies registration for providers.
The support cluster is listed beside each support item in the following tables, so that participants can more easily find a provider in their area for a support they wish to purchase. This is available on the registered service providers page.
