Release of the NDIS 2022-2023 Annual Pricing Review
The NDIA have released the 2022-2023 Annual Pricing Review.
It will implement Review recommendations to ensure appropriate pricing is in place for participants so they can continue to access high quality supports while also receiving value for money.
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.
NDIS participants’ plans will be adjusted in July, with funding to be indexed to 1 July to account for these pricing changes.
