How pricing works
The NDIA sets the price for some supports to make sure they provide value for money for participants.
Changes to prices are updated to respond to market trends and changes in costs and are generally identified through an Annual Price Review. The Annual Price Review is undertaken by the NDIA in the lead up to new financial year, with any new prices outlined in an updated price guide, effective 1 July each year.
Refer to the Annual Price Review page for the latest updates, including some early pricing announcements, for further information.
For current prices until 30 June 2019, refer below.

NDIS Price Guide 2019-20
The NDIA has released an updated NDIS Price Guide and Support Catalogue 2019–20, effective 1 July 2019.
Key updates effective 1 July 2019 include:
- general price increases and specific increases for therapists, attendant care and community participation;
- the introduction of a Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP);
- increases to remote and very remote loadings;
- updates to travel, non- face-to-face services and cancellation billing policies;
- updates to Assistive Technology and Home Modifications;
- outcomes from the WA Market Review and Therapy Services Review.
The updated NDIS Price Guide 2019–20 is now a single national price guide. The price guide is meant to be used alongside the NDIS Support Catalogue 2019–20.
The NDIS Price Guide 2019–20 contains policy information and guidance for providers on how to comply with the terms of the TTP.
The NDIS Support Catalogue 2019–20 contains support line item numbers, price limits and details to help clearly identify what is claimable against each support line item.
The increased price limits across listed supports from 1 July 2019 are:
- 4.5% for supports listed under Assistance with Daily Activities and Social and Community Participation. This is in response to the Fair Work Commission annual wage review decision and the Equal Remuneration Order
- 2.3% for capacity building supports, including support coordination and therapy. This is in line with the ABS Wage Price Index
- 1.3% for supports listed under Consumables, Assistive Technology and Home Modification and Specialised Disability Accommodation. This is to align with the ABS Consumer Price Index between March 2018 and March 2019.
