Once you have your NDIS Plan you may be looking for assistance in implementing your NDIS Plan.
Equity Works specialises in a wide range of disability support services for children and adults and have staff placed all across the Sunshine Coast. Our response to enquiries for services will always be to meet a person face to face and to get to know more about their goals and aspirations. We will then match you with the staff we believe have the skills and personal values that will best support you to pursue your goals. Read more about our Support Services.
Some people have additional support in their plans, designed to assist them with the implementation of their plans. Support Coordination is a capacity building service and we have staff who can assist you with the implementation of your plan and the design of services to achieve the outcomes and goals you have identified in your plan. Contact us if you would like to know about our Support Coordination Services.
Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP)
The Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) is an additional cost providers can charge as they continue to transition to working under the NDIS.
- The TTP is a charge on top of the base rate price limit for attendant care and community and centre-based activities.
- Before providers can apply the TTP to prices they charge, they must inform you and confirm your acceptance of the new price.
- You should also check your service agreement with your provider.
If providers want to charge the TTP, they must:
- publish their service prices on their website;
- list and keep up-to-date their business contact details in the Provider Finder; and
- participate annually in an Agency-approved market benchmarking survey.
Equity Works does apply the TTP to its prices. The NDIS Price Guide we apply was published 13 July 2020 (line items ending in a T have TTP applied) and is available here. If you have any questions about the prices associated with our services, please ask and we will be happy to give you full detail as applies to services you are interested in or are receiving.
How does it effect you?
- All plans are built to support your reasonable and necessary needs.
- If you had an NDIS plan in place before 1 July 2019, an extra amount was added to your plan to take into account price changes implemented on 1 July, including TTP
- If you have an NDIS plan put in place after 1 July 2019, your plan does not include funding specifically for TTP but your core budget is flexible and should be able to accommodate TTP.
- The NDIA has a process that monitors utilisation of NDIS plans.
- If this process identifies a plan with high utilisation that might run out of funds before the plan end date, the NDIA will contact the participant to initiate arrange an unscheduled plan review so you will continue to receive your supports without disruption.
You can discuss your situation with LACs and Support Coordinators. They can help you meet your support needs within your budget. They can also discuss your options to request a plan review if necessary.
