The NDIA has published changes to pricing arrangements and price limits, announced on 2 June 2021.
- The base price limits for supports delivered by disability support workers have increased by 2.95% from 1 July 2021 to take account of the Fair Work Commission’s decision to increase minimum wages by 2.5% and the increase in the super guarantee percentage, from 9.5% to 10%.
- The price limits for specialist disability accommodation have increased by 1.1% based on the change in the consumer price index.
- The Temporary Transformation Payment loading has reduced from 6% to 4.5% as previously announced.
- Providers will be able to use the transitional pricing arrangements for group-based supports for a further 12 months.
The NDIA has also released the Report of the Review of Pricing Arrangements for Supported Independent Living.
The review confirms that SIL price limits should continue to be aligned with Assistance with Daily Living price limits.

Funds in existing participant plans will not be adjusted on 1 July for the changes in price limits. Our data shows most participants will be able to continue to purchase the supports they need from their existing plan funds and will not be impacted by changes to price limits.
We have a process in place to monitor plan utilisation and identify participants who are likely to utilise their entire funded supports before their plan end date. We will ensure participants continue to receive the reasonable and necessary supports they need without disruption.
If participants are concerned the pricing changes will impact their plans funds, they can call the National Contact Centre to request a plan review.
The NDIA is responsible for setting price limits for many supports providers deliver; in this way we foster market growth and promote the delivery of high quality and innovative supports. Our pricing arrangements ensure participants receive reasonable value for money from their plan funds.
All changes to NDIS pricing arrangements and price limits are reviewed and endorsed by the NDIA Board.
