From July 1st, 2022, NDIS increased the price limits for services delivered by disability support workers by 9% to address known pressures on providers, including:
Costs associated with managing the COVID-19 pandemic
NDIS Quality and safeguards regulatory requirements
Fair Work Commission’s recent wage decision
Superannuation guarantee charge increase.
The Annual Pricing Review showed the cost of delivering core supports was higher than anticipated during 2021-22, as a result of the impact of COVID-19 and quality and safeguarding requirements.
The NDIA will also make up to an extra $514 million available to providers to recognize the costs of keeping participants safe, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the significant overhead costs incurred by registered providers of activities of daily living and community participation supports not previously considered.
