Buried in an announcement about the end of some of the changes made to the NDIS as a result of the COVID19 is the news that participants will NO longer be able to buy or top up Support Coordination out of their core budget.
The NDIA released the new price guide for 2020 today. The good news is that the NDIA have got this guide out much earlier than usual. This means we all have a chance to dig around in it and get a handle on everything before it actually goes live on July 1.
After a couple of weeks of confusion, anxiety and worry, the National Disability Insurance Agency confirmed this afternoon that NDIS participants CAN purchase a smart device to help them with their disability support during this period.
A couple of weeks ago the Minister for the NDIS Stuart Robert announced the NDIA were making some changes to transport funding. In a move widely celebrated as “thank god at last” the Minister announced participants would now be able to use some of their core funding to pay for transport.
The NDIA said the changes would begin on March 1 and that a new price guide would be released “shortly”.
