2022-23 Annual Pricing Review (APR) update

Pricing changes effective 1 July 2023

The 2022-23 Annual Price Review (APR) report is now available. The report covers:

  • the findings and results of the 2022-23 APR consultation 
  • the 2022-23 APR recommendations including changes to Pricing Arrangement and Price Limits (PAPL) effective 1 July 2023.

We also released an updated PAPL guide and pricing addenda. The updated PAPL includes adjustments made to reflect relevant industrial changes, including the Fair Work Commissions decision to increase award wages, announced 2 June 2023. 

A summary of the key pricing changes and the updated PAPL can be found on the pricing updates page

All pricing changes will be effective 1 July 2023. 

The 2022-23 APR coincides with the broader NDIS Review. As such, the scope of the 2022-23 APR has been carefully defined to limit potential overlap with the NDIS Review. 

The 2022-23 APR scope looked at pricing arrangements and price limits that apply to: 

  • Disability Support Worker (DSW) related supports 
  • Therapy supports 
  • Support coordination  
  • Plan management. 

To help inform the 2022-23 APR, we engaged participants, providers and other stakeholders by releasing the 2022-23 APR Consultation Paper in March 2023. 

In addition to evaluating the 304 submissions received in response to the Consultation Paper, we also consulted with:

  • other government insurance and funding schemes
  • the Pricing Arrangements Reference Group 
  • the Pricing Interdepartmental Committee
  • the Department of Veterans' Affairs and the Chief Allied Health Officer.
