The NDIA has released the long-awaited Industry Information and Consultation Paper, providing further detail on the proposed NDIS pricing model for supported employment.
The paper contains important information on determining support ratios, how all relevant factors can be included when claiming supports and the new timeframe for the rollout of the pricing.
NDS is especially pleased to note that the new rollout timeframe will allow extensive consultation with the sector as well as the opportunity for Disability Enterprises to choose when they adopt the new pricing. The new pricing will come into effect from 1 July 2020 and Disability Enterprises will be able to continue using the existing pricing for a further 18 months should they require additional time to prepare. The new arrangements will be reflected in participant plans as these are reviewed.
