Submission on the NDIA Annual Price Review
The NDIS pricing model is not working for individual or group support. In particular, the prescriptiveness of NDIS plans (including around staffing qualification levels for different activities) are operationally prohibitive, and travel is completely unaffordable. It is deeply disappointing that because issues with NDIS pricing have not been resolved, large providers are having to cease service provision. This is to the severe detriment of the wellbeing of participants. Fundamental changes must be made if the NDIS is going to ensure quality, accessible services and choice and control for Australians living with disability.
