The NDIA has released the NDIS Price Guide 2020-21 and Support Catalogue, effective 1 July. The Price Guide and Support Catalogue have been updated to reflect indexed price limits as a result of the Fair Work Commission Annual Wage Review 2019-20 .
Participant plans will be automatically indexed from 1 July 2020, to take into account the decision of the Fair Work Commission and movement in the Consumer Price Index. Plans will be updated from 11 July but indexation will still apply from 1 July.
In response to feedback, providers will have until 30 June 2021 to transition to the new pricing arrangements for group-based supports.
From 1 July, providers will have the opportunity to use either the new streamlined pricing arrangements for group-based supports or continue to use the existing 2019-20 arrangements.
The Assistive Technology and Consumables Code Guide, effective 1 July, is also now available.
The NDIA is also responding to several topics raised by stakeholders to provide greater certainty and clarity for NDIS participants and providers.
These amendments have been made as a result of extensive consultation with the sector as part of the Annual Price Review 2020-21.
