NDIS Rates from 1st July 2019

Establishment fee for personal care/community access

This fee applies to all plans for new and transitioning NDIS participants who receive at least 20 hours of personal care/community access support per month, for three consecutive months. This payment is to cover providers establishing arrangements and assisting participants in implementing their plan.

The establishment fee will operate as follows:

  • a one-off maximum amount is included in a participant’s plan of $750;
  • providers can charge $500 against a plan if assisting a new participant, who is new to NDIS and new to the provider;
  • providers can charge $250 when they are maintaining an existing client of theirs who is commencing as a participant of the NDIS;
  • Should a participant wish to change providers, $250 is available to the new provider from the balance of the establishment fee. This is to assist the participant in changing providers.

Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP)

The NDIA has introduced a Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) for providers to assist with the ever-changing challenges and cost of providing services under the NDIS. These costs have been extensive, including employing additional office staff, implementing a completely new database to manage the NDIS, additional NDIS specific training of field staff and an extensive auditing process. Some of these things have already happened and some are still in process or will be ongoing.
