The NDIS releases new NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits every financial year (1 July-30 June) to reflect the new market cost of services.
These prices are an upper limit, so if you are able to negotiate a cheaper price with your provider, that means you will be able to get more out of your allocated funding.
The NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits (previously known as the ‘Price Guide’) contains lots of useful information about what you may be able to claim through your NDIS funding and under what category you can claim it.
The good news is, there are a few steps that you can take to avoid price shock or a budget blow out:
If you haven’t heard from your providers already, you can contact and tell them you expect to be informed of any price changes, and asked to approve any new charges. To help you out, we’ve prepared this conversation flow to use as a guide.
If you have questions about the price changes, you can ask a coach inside Kinora, our free online community.
