Temporary Transformation Payment for Attendant Care and Community Participation supports
From 1 July 2019, providers of attendant care and community and centre based activities have access to a higher support price limit through a Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP). The TTP is a conditional loading to assist providers with any costs associated in transitioning to the NDIS. In 2019–20, the TTP is set at 7.5 per cent on the relevant level 1 support item and will reduce by 1.5 per cent each year thereafter. The TTP support item number is the support base number with the addition of the letter T. These support item numbers are outlined in the NDIS Support Catalogue 2019–20, effective 1 July 2019.
Providers have to comply with certain requirements if they wish to claim the higher TTP price limits – these can be found at https://www.ndis.gov.au/providers/price-guides-and-pricing/annual-price-review
Before claiming the TTP price limit, YMCA of Bundaberg will discuss this with you and agree on any proposed changes prior to commencement of service.
