About NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits
The NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits (formerly the NDIS Price Guide) are essential resources for Participants and providers who need to understand how pricing works for supports and services in the NDIS. The purpose of price regulation is to ensure that Participants receive high-quality supports at a reasonable cost.
The Support Catalogue lists all available supports and includes information on current and previous price limits for each support item, as well as the types of claims that can be made for each price-limited support. Price limits set the maximum amount that registered providers can charge NDIS Participants for specific supports, but it is possible for Participants and providers to negotiate lower prices.
Providers must follow the rules outlined in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits when delivering supports to NDIA-managed or plan-managed Participants. The NDIA regularly updates its pricing arrangements to reflect changes in the market and feedback from Participants and providers.
