A new NDIS Price Guide and Support Catalogue effective 1 March 2020, is now available on the NDIS website introducing nine activity-based transport items.
This increases flexibility for participants to exercise choice and control over their transport. Providers will also find it easier to claim non-labour transport costs incurred when transporting or accompanying participants to and from activities in the community, including assistance to access and maintain employment or higher education.
Non-labour costs associated with participant transport can include public transport fares, road tolls, parking fees, reasonable vehicle running costs and taxi or ride-share fares.
While these items are not price-controlled, the NDIS Price Guide (effective 1 March 2020) outlines a reasonable level of non-labour costs.
