Reasonable travel allowance like never before!
National disability Insurance scheme (NDIS) has recently introduced price change in certain support areas. NDIS has set up price limits for certain support services that can affect participants at all levels. This step has been taken in order to ensure that they are able to provide value for money for the participants who are involved or who are currently availing them.
Change in prices was introduced recently with effect from December 1st, 2019 and they are updated in order to keep up with the market trends and changes in costs. NDIS website highlights all the changes that have been implemented on their website and major update includes:
– The price limit has been increased and the name changed to Short Term Accommodation and Assistance.
– Introduction of Medium Term Accommodation.
– Introduction of two new support items for dietitians.
You can visit their website to learn more about the changes and the latest updates. The main takeaway we have noticed so far includes changes in the transportation section. To make it more specific and clear it means that if there are contribution costs to transport then specifically transportation budget should be used. And in case if there is no transport budget then the participant involved cannot claim it from the NDIS plan as it is an out of the pocket expense.
A recent update of the NDIS price guide has affected many participants who have availed the services from different NDIS service providers. This has majorly affected the participants who were receiving transport services under the scheme. As per the new guidelines, participants are expected to make a contribution out of their pockets towards transportation. It is important to note that every participant is unique and will have different requirements. Hence, they may not
be able to make a contribution to this added cost or might not even make use of public transport as per their plan.
This is where Star Community Care team steps in. At Star Community Care, we are committed to providing NDIS participants with access to the best care services possible and meet each participant’s unique requirement in line with choice and control guidelines as per their choice.
