NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits

The NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) has rules about how much providers can charge for supports and services. These rules are called NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits, previously known as the NDIS Price Guide. They help participants and disability support providers understand how prices are controlled in the NDIS.

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Price Regulation: The NDIS sets rules to make sure participants get good value for the supports they receive.
  2. Support Catalogue: This lists all the supports providers can offer when they ask for payment. It also shows the maximum prices (price limits) for each support item and the types of claims allowed (like travel or non-face-to-face).
  3. Negotiating Prices: Providers can charge lower prices if agreed upon by participants. But they must follow the rules outlined in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits when delivering supports to NDIS-managed or plan-managed participants.
  4. Regular Updates: The NDIA regularly updates pricing arrangements to keep them fair and up-to-date.
