The NDIA is committed to the continuous improvement of the methodologies underpinning the NDIS price control framework.

This Annual Price Review 2020–21 examined whether the existing price control framework and other market settings under the NDIS continue to be appropriate or should be modified.

The Review engaged in extensive consultations with industry, community and government stakeholders and undertook a program of research.

  • Issues paper released 28 November 2019 – 96 submissions
  • Face-to-face consultations – 29 groups of providers in each state / territory
  • Six working groups – 108 providers
  • Pricing Reference Group met with members of six provider peak groups and three participant peak groups
  • Consultations / desktop analysis with ten other like state / national schemes to compare pricing arrangement for attendant care and therapy services.

The NDIA has published a report with the results of the financial benchmarking survey conducted with providers claiming TTP in 2019‒2020.

Information from the financial benchmarking survey was considered as part of the Annual Price Review.

Due to the extension of the TTP survey closing date to 30 June 2020, as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, additional feedback received will be collated and considered as part of future pricing decisions.

The Review made 14 recommendations which are reflected in the changes made to the NDIS Price Guide and Support Catalogue 2020–21 effective from 1 July 2020.

The NDIA is indexing participant plans from 1 July 2020, to take into account the decision of the Fair Work Commission and movement in the Consumer Price Index. Plan funding will be updated from 11 July 2020, but indexation will still apply from 1 July 2020.

Due to the uncertain economic conditions resulting from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the next Annual Price Review will be conducted from July to December 2021 with reporting done in February / March 2022. Any changes resulting from the Annual Price Review will take effect 1 July 2022.

The NDIA will continue to monitor economic conditions and respond to emerging issues.
