Providers decide their prices based on the cost of providing supports or services. The NDIA does not set the prices that suppliers charge it. You can negotiate with your supplier and they can't charge you more than the price limit. You can download the latest price agreements, price limits and the NDIS support catalog on the pricing page.
The price agreements and price limits of the NDIS (formerly the NDIS Price Guide) help participants and support providers for people with disabilities to understand how price controls for supports and services work in the NDIS. If you provide a range of services and only one of them belongs to a high-risk registry group, you will need to undergo a certification audit. All support from NDIS Appeals is free of charge. In your request, you must search for and select your supplier using your unique worker evaluation identifier.
You may need to ask your provider or participant for identification for the work history test. If you're working for a self-managed participant, you'll need to search for the participant by the participant's last name. The NDIS Check is a way to ensure that people who work with NDIS participants do not pose an unacceptable risk to participants. If you are granted an exclusion from the NDIS, you will not be able to request an NDIS check again for five years from the date of notification, unless your circumstances change.
You can download a flow chart of the NDIS worker selection application process from the NDIS Commission website External link. Guidelines are available to help both suppliers and NDIS workers understand their obligations under the NDIS Code of Conduct. It is not a complete list of all the supports that the NDIS can provide as reasonably and needed. We have updated the price agreements and price limits of the NDIS so that the price plans for provider trips are the same for providers of basic support to participants in remote and very remote areas as for providers of capacity-building support.
A “self-managed plan” is where an NDIS participant or their plan candidate contracts NDIS supports and services on their own. The NDIS worker selection check is only available to those who provide NDIS supports and services to NDIS participants. If your plan is managed by the NDIA or is managed by a plan, your provider must follow the price agreements and price limits of the NDIS. Your NDIS authorization status will be recorded in the NDIS National Commission's Worker Selection Database (NWSD), external link.
This allows suppliers more time to make a successful transition to the new pricing agreement, which will be complemented by the publication of the supplier guide. If you have an authorization from the NDIS and you have already paid your WWC check, necessary for your position in the NDIS, you can request a refund by filling out the following refund request form. Once you have completed your request, the provider or participant you designate will receive a notification from the NDIS Commission stating that they have 30 days to verify your request. Some people will need to obtain an authorization from the NDIS and an authorization from the WWC, as they can engage in child-related work as part of their role in the NDIS.
Do not notify the department, in writing, within 7 days of a material change in circumstances while you are in possession of an authorization from the NDIS or you have requested an authorization from the NDIS.
