How does NDIS pricing work?
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) sets price limits -:
"to assist participants and disability support providers, both current and prospective, to understand the way that price controls for supports and services work in the NDIS"
Designed so participants receive reasonable value from their support packages.
Support packages are provided by NDIS providers. However when accessing a providers website a participant needs some sense of pricing. Without limits placed on providers it may be difficult to adequately compare providers.
The price limit specifies the maximum price a provider can charge.
The NDIS is currently an immature market, so these pricing limits help participants.
"Maximum prices that Registered Providers can charge NDIS participants for specific supports"
