On 1 July the NDIA released the final 2019 – 2020 Price Guide which came into effect 1 July, 2019. Everyday Independence is committed to following the NDIS Price Guide, so we have adjusted our pricing to reflect the NDIA changes.
The changes that apply specifically to the services that we provide to NDIS participants include:
- an increase in the hourly rate of occupational therapy, speech pathology and physiotherapy services to $193.99
- an increase in Specialist Behaviour Intervention Support to $214.41 per hour
- the time cap for travel in metropolitan areas has increased to 30 minutes and in regional areas has increased to 60 minutes.
The NDIA have committed to adjusting the funding in NDIS plans to account for the changes in pricing for therapy.
All our NDIS Service agreements include a clause that our fees and charges adhere to the NDIS Price Guide so we will be implementing the change on 1 July to honour that commitment. We will do this by updating our billing system and service booking processes. Our therapy and administration teams are being briefed on the changes and we will send out communication to the people we currently support with NDIS funding to let them know about this change as soon as possible.
If you have any questions about the changes in relation to our services please call your local Everyday Independence team or call 1300 179 131, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
