There has been a new NDIS Price Guide update. NDIS participants will be able to use their plan’s core support funding to claim service provider costs associated with transporting participants to and from NDIS funded community-based activities. This means that people should be able to use their core funding on transport but only to certain places. NDIS participants will only be able to claim from the new transport line items if they are going somewhere where they will be supported by the transport provider. For more detailed guidelines around transport you can check the NDIS Price Guide 2020-21 (released 1 July 2020) here .
Participants and providers can discuss and agree on non-labour costs, when arranging a service booking, including:
- up to $0.85 a kilometre for a standard vehicle not modified for accessibility;
- up to $2.40 a kilometre for a vehicle that is modified for accessibility or a bus; and
- other forms of transport or associated costs up to the full amount, such as road tolls, parking, public transport fares.
