Multicap Tasmania Temporary Transformation Pricing Schedule

Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP)

On 25 June 2019 the Minister overseeing the NDIS, Stuart Robert, released the 2019-20 NDIS Price Guide which included a new payment for hourly based supports, known as a Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) which included a 7.5% loading on the normal hourly rate.
Details are available here

This additional loading is intended to assist providers transforming themselves to be sustainable in the new NDIS environment. The Multicap Tasmania Board has committed to using these additional funds for specific projects that will lead to better service provision and streamlined administrative processes to ultimately benefit our clients.

Multicap Tasmania confirms our intention to charge the TTP and use the funds to assist with service improvement and transformation. We are committed to implementing changes that will help our long term sustainability and therefore welcome your agreement to include TTP in your plan. As detailed in the NDIA response below, this should not have an impact on the supports approved in your plan.

The NDIA website provides details of how the TTP will impact on plans.

  

What has changed?

  • 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.

  

How does it affect me?

  • All plans are built to support your reasonable and necessary needs.
  • Your provider will contact you if they propose to claim the additional TTP loading.
  • TTP is set at 7.5 per cent of the support cost and will reduce by 1.5 per cent each year. This means TTP in 2020-21 will reduce to 6 per cent.
  • 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 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.

  

All other hourly charges are based on the NDIS Price Guide, which can be accessed here
