2019/20 price guides - effective 1 July 2019 to 30 September 2019

These 2019/20 price guides took effect on 1 July 2019 and were superseded 1 October 2019. They included:

  • 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 was a single national price guide, providing information and guidance about NDIS prices and linked policy. The NDIS Price Guide 2019-20 was used in conjunction with the NDIS Support Catalogue 2019–20 when a provider and participant discussed what could be charged, and at what price, to deliver supports. The NDIS Support Catalogue 2019-20 outlined price limits and all claimable line item numbers. Providers and participants had to discuss and agree on any proposed changes to charges before they were implemented.

The increased price limits across listed supports from 1 July 2019 were:

  • 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
  • 2.1% 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.
