Price changes and what does that mean for you?

June 26, 2023

From 1 July 2023, there will be:

  • Adjusted price limits for supports delivered by disability support workers of plus 5.3%, in line with the Fair Work Commission’s decision to increase award wages. This change will also come into effect for Level 1 support coordinators.
  • An extension of the temporary loading for a further 12 months at 1%, ending on 1 July 2024.
  • Inclusion of paid family and domestic violence leave into the Disability Support Worker Cost Model – up by 0.1% to reflect the new entitlements for workers in the industry.
  • No changes in pricing arrangements for Therapy Supports, Support Co-ordination (Category 2 & 3) and Plan Managers.

The Superannuation Guarantee Charge of 0.5% will also be passed on in full.

Participants do not need to do anything. Providers must discuss and agree to any proposed changes to existing service agreements with participants.

It may be advisable to read all the changes in full, so everyone is doing the right thing by the NDIS and participants living with a disability.
