Breaking News: 15% Price Increase Announced

The Federal Government this morning announced a long awaited increase in the prices for NDIS funded therapy, attendant care and community participation.

The price increases include a minimum increase of almost $11 per hour for therapists and up to a 15.4 percent price increase to the base limit for attendant care and community participation.

The announcement from Minister Fletcher and Minister Henderson also notes that providers of attendant care will also be eligible for an additional pricing boost through a "temporary transformation payment", though no further details are available about this payment.

The details of the price increases will be released in the coming months, to be effective as of 1 July 2019 with the release of the updated NDIS Price Guide.
