The NDIA is committed to the co-design of improvements to the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
As part of the 2021-22 Annual Pricing Review, the Agency has committed to making available up to $514 million to registered providers. The payment is in recognition of additional costs of keeping participants safe, particularly during COVID-19, and the significant overhead costs incurred by providers this year that were not previously taken into account. This payment will be delivered as a one-off lump sum to eligible registered providers and will be calculated by the Agency. The payment has a minimum threshold of $5000. If your organisation is eligible to receive a one-off payment, you will receive an email with information...
Earlier this year, the Australian Parliament passed changes to the NDIS legislation to improve the Scheme.
NAIDOC week, which runs from 3-10 July, celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Over the last week we have received feedback from providers and participants concerned that a number of therapies were removed from the NDIS Support Catalogue or prices reduced by the NDIA Board.
The Hon. Bill Shorten MP, Minister for the NDIS and Government Services, is calling on qualified disability support workers to join a register to cover potential workforce shortages and critical shifts over the winter months.
