New NDIS Price Guide

Dear customer,

Thank you for choosing Northcott as your NDIS service provider.

  • Assistance With Self-Care Activities – Complex
  • Access Community, Social And Rec Activities – Ratio 1:1- Complex

Rates per hour for support items have also changed.

What will happen to your current services scheduled with Northcott?

You will continue to receive your supports, they will simply now be provided under the new NDIS support item number.

Your statements and invoices will show the new support item numbers.

When do the changes start?

The new NDIS support items will be used from 1 July 2019.

How will these charges impact your NDIS Plan?

As a result of the NDIS pricing increases, we may need to review your Northcott service agreement and request a review of your NDIS plan. Your account manager will monitor your funding and be in contact with you to discuss any changes. They will support you each step of the way and advise you if a new service agreement is required.

If you have questions, or require more information, please call your account manager on 1800 818 286 Monday to Friday between 8am and 8pm.

Kind regards,
