Pricing for NDIS services
At Spinal Life Australia, pricing for all our NDIS services reflects the guidelines that have been set by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
This information is provided in the NDIS Price Guide, which is reviewed annually to ensure prices continue to align with market trends, and ensure they provide value for money for participants.
The NDIS Price Guide 2020-21 was released on 1 July 2020 and included price increases in therapy, attendant care and community participation, as well as the introduction of the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP).
The TTP is aimed at assisting eligible service providers with costs associated with transitioning to the NDIS, by allowing them to charge a higher support price for attendance care and community and centre-based activities.
As an eligible provider, our prices include the TTP for all applicable services, as we continue to transform our service delivery and meet new requirements set out by the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
