WHAT IS THE NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for Australians under the age of 65, with a significant and permanent disability, as well as providing support to their families and carers. The scheme takes a lifetime approach to ensuring that Australians with disability will have the necessary support they need to live an ordinary life.
If you are eligible, the NDIS will provide funding for reasonable and necessary supports that are required for you to live your life and reach your goals.
Understanding the Price Guide (now called the “NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits”) is a resource put together by the NDIS to help you understand recent pricing changes and how those changes might affect you, your family, and your carers.
It’s important to understand all the prices you might be charged, so you can be confident you are receiving value for money from your plan budget. Stay up to date on any NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits.
To support you to understand the latest pricing changes published by the NDIA on July 1, 2021, Unisson has also created the following resources:
- NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits – applicable to all Unisson’s clients and their families; and
- Non-Face-to-Face Charges for One-to-One Supports in the Community – applicable to Unisson’s clients and their families currently accessing one-to-one supports in the community.
Everyone’s situation is unique, and the appropriate funding structure will also be unique. If you have any questions, please contact your Unisson Team Leader or Support Coordinator or submit this enquiry form.
Once you receive your NDIS plan, you can select Unisson Disability as your NDIS provider. This means that the support covered in your plan will be provided by Unisson Disability and funded by the NDIS. As a registered NDIS provider, Unisson Disability will support you to achieve your goals and live your best life. Unisson applies the NDIS price guide and NDIS support catalogue to all services, this means that we do not charge a higher amount than specified by the NDIS.
