From 1 January to 30 June 2022, the NDIA is temporarily increasing some NDIS price limits to factor in support worker PPE.
• The price limits for community participation supports and supports with activities of daily living, other than group core supports and Supported Independent Living (SIL), will increase by 0.25%
• The price limits for group core supports and SIL will increase by 0.4%
• Providers will no longer claim separately from participant plans for the cost of support worker PPE
• Providers in NSW, VIC, and the ACT will no longer directly claim reimbursement from the NDIA for the cost of PPE
The changes are in recognition that providers across Australia continue to supply support workers with PPE.
These increased limits will apply until 30 June 2022. The NDIA will decide on ongoing pricing arrangements for PPE costs as part of the Annual Pricing Review 2021-2022.
Remember! Providers have until 31 January 2022 to claim reimbursement from the NDIA for the cost of PPE incurred up to 31 December 2021, under the direct billing arrangement.
Keep an eye out for future updates, as the NDIA will continue to monitor public health orders and will review the need for this measure as orders are adjusted.
