What is the new TTP (Temporary Transformation Payment) for NDIS Service Providers?
A TTP is a Temporary Transition Payment. This payment is available to providers of attendant care and community access. This is a conditional loading to help providers with any costs transitioning to the NDIS. This support replaces the TPO Payment (Temporary Support for Overheads)
How does TTP work?
Under each support item a loading of 7.5 % has been added. This loading will reduce by 1.5% each year.
Every support item that the TTP applies to (attendant care and community access) has two support items and two price limits:
The non-TTP items should be used by providers who are not compliant with the TTP conditions.
The TTP items should be used by providers who are compliant with the TTP conditions.
Who can be a TTP provider?
In order to get this payment, providers will need to meet the following requirements:
Be a Registered NDIS provider
Publish their service prices
Keep their contact details up-to-date on the Provider Finder
Complete an Agency-approved bench-marking survey each year
When is the TTP effective from?
The payment is available from 1st July 2019 and providers have until 31st December to meet compliance requirements. After that, providers must be compliant from the start of the financial year.
Where can I find TTP pricing in the NDIS price guide?
Information about the TTP Payment can be found on page 12 of the new NDIS Price Guide.
Important: Participants must agree to pay TTP prices
Before claiming the TTP price limit, providers and participants must discuss and agree to any proposed changes. This should be in your service agreement.
