Your guide to the 2017/18 NDIS rate increases

On July 1st 2017 the NDIS released its updated rates – they do this every year. The document is quite complicated so we have pulled out the relevant parts to make it easier for you.

 

The good news is that your NDIS plan budget will increase to match the new rates – so there will be no impact on the amount of support you are able to purchase.

 

Therapy Services

There is no change in price for most Therapy Supports which continue to be at $175.57 per hour except for people in remote parts of Australia. From 1 September the price will align with the NDIS new bench mark rate of $210.68 per hour for locally based services. (Any visiting services continue to be at $175.57 per hour).
