There are around 4.3 million Australians who have a disability. Within the next five years, the NDIS will provide an estimated 500,000 Australians who have permanent and significant disability with funding for supports and services.
For many people, it will be the first time they receive the disability support they need.
The scheme is designed to provide all people with disability information and connections to services and supports in their local communities, providing them with choice and control over their day to day activities and enabling them to lead a normal life.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a Federal Government funding scheme to support people with disability, their families, and carers. People with disability will receive funding for reasonable and necessary supports based on their individual needs and aspirations.
People with disability will be able to choose the types of supports they receive, when and where they are accessed, and which disability service providers they will use to deliver the supports.
From 1 July 2019 the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) introduced the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) which is a conditional loading to assist service providers as they continue to transition to working under the NDIS.
TTP is set at 7.5% of the support cost and will be reduced by 1.5% each year.
To access TTP pricing service providers must:
HPA is compliant with the NDIA’s eligibility terms to use TTP prices where applicable.
All NDIS plans are built to reflect and support your reasonable and necessary needs. NDIS plans in place before 1 July 2019 had funding added to cover TTP prices for the remainder of the plan. NDIS plans created after 1 July 2019 will not include funding specifically for TTP but your core budget is flexible and should accommodate TTP pricing.
As of 1 July 2019 HPS will automatically apply TTP pricing for all applicable community participation and centre-based activities when accessing services under the NDIS.
To support your NDIS plan utilisation and budget you should inform your LAC or Planner that your provider charges TTP pricing to ensure your NDIS plan has sufficient funding.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) imposes price controls on some support services by setting the prices that registered providers can charge for those services.
As a registered NDIS provider, HPA incorporated charges the NDIS prices for support services. HPA is also compliant with the NDIA’s eligibility terms to use the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) where applicable.
