In July 2019, the NDIA introduced a new cost called the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP). TTP is a special NDIS pricing arrangement paid by the NDIA to service providers.
The TTP is a conditional price loading designed to assist providers, like Activ, to transition to the NDIS.
The TTP item is higher than the price limit for the non-TTP item. The difference in price limits commenced at 7.5% in the 2019-20 financial year, reducing by 1.5% each financial year thereafter.
For the 2021/22 financial year, the NDIS set the TTP rate at 4.5% above the standard rates that Activ charge for the services we provide. The TTP rate will decrease by 1.5% each year until it is completely removed.
Like other providers, Activ must also outline the price that we charge to deliver support services to our customers. The price for a particular service cannot be greater than the price limit set out in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits 2021-22 (effective 7 December 2021) and the NDIS Support Catalogue 2021-22 (effective 17 August 2021).
Activ will be applying the transitional rate for supported employment services until 30 June 2022. Activ will transition to the new employment hourly rates from 1 July 2022.
What is a Support Catalogue?
The Support Catalogue acts as a price list for the types of services and supports available through the NDIS.
