Summary of changes in the 2022/23 NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits and expected release date (published on the 27th of June, 2022)

Our analysis of the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits 2022-23 has been completed and we are pleased to announce the expected release date of the new Price Guide, as well as a summary of changes. 


Expected release date

We are expecting to add the  2022/23 NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits into SupportAbility on Thursday evening the 30th of June, 2022

N.B. This will continue to be called the Price Guide in SupportAbility e.g. Price Guide: QLD 2022/23 - July 1st

A planned outage of 10 minutes is expected on Thursday evening the 30th of June, 2022 between 8:00 pm and 10:00 pm whilst this is being added to SupportAbility. Communications regarding this planned outage will be sent separately. This can also be viewed in the  SupportAbility Scheduled Maintenance and Outage Register article linked below for reference. 


What has changed in the latest Price Guide?

Whilst a number of changes have been made to rules regarding how some Supports are delivered e.g. Short Notice Cancellations now 7 days, changes to provider travel rules and restructured Support Items; these changes have not resulted in any additional development being required in SupportAbility, other than the addition of the new Price Guide. 

Most Support Items have an increased price and many have had a name change. 17 Support Items have been added, 48 Support Items have been removed (only some of which are now Legacy Supports) and 4 Support Items have updated Claim Types. Further details are available in the Analysis Summary section below. 

If providers of Plan Management Services who utilise Plan Managed Funding records in SupportAbility need to claim for 01_134_0117_8_1  Capacity Building and Training in Self-Management and Plan Management, it is important to clarify that this Support Item cannot be added to the Plan Management Funding record and an NDIS Direct Funding record will need to be created for this, so that this Support can be Allocated in the relevant Activities the Client participates in and claimed. 

We are also aware of the new Bereavement Addendum, however, given the nature of these Support Items, they have not been added to SupportAbility. These Support Items need to be claimed manually from the myplace provider portal following the required guidance as outlined in the Addendum.
