As you may be aware, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) recently completed its Annual Pricing Review.
As a result of the review, the price limits set by the NDIA increased from 1 July 2023. Making these price changes ensures appropriate pricing is in place for participants so they can continue to access high quality supports while also receiving value for money. As a registered NDIS service provider, Ability WA will align its prices with the NDIS Pricing Arrangements.
This increase was applied to a variety of support services and specifically Supported Independent Living, Short Term Accommodation and Assistance with Social, Economic and Community Participation, including supported employment.
What does this mean for Ability WA Customers?
The NDIS will apply this increase to the remaining balance of your funds for any period after 1 July to account for this price increase, resulting in no financial impact for you.
This increase should appear in your remaining balances available on your My Place Portal.
Why is this important?
Ability WA will apply the appropriate increase to any services delivered after 1 July 2023 to the nominated supports and will adjust through increasing service bookings in line with stipulated increases.
To confirm, this increase will only be applied to any remaining balances from 1 July 2023 until your plan end date. Any new plans effective from 1 July will have the price increase already applied, and nothing will change
You will find a complete list of NDIS Pricing Arrangements here.
We will commence service booking updates from the week commencing 17 July 2023, reflecting changes from 1 July 2023. If you have any questions concerning the above, please do not hesitate to reach out. I can be contacted on 1300 106 106 or by email email@example.com.
