Information (TTP) Taken off the NDIS Support Catalogue 1st March 2020

Providers of attendant care and community participation supports who meet the eligibility criteria set out below will have access to a higher price limit through a Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP). This conditional loading will assist providers to continue transforming their businesses in the move towards a more competitive marketplace. This replaces the Temporary Support for Overheads. In order to access the higher TTP price limits, providers will have to:

  • publish their service prices;
  • list their business contact details in the Provider Finder and ensure those details are kept up-to-date; and
  • participate annually in an Agency-approved market benchmarking survey.

Providers must meet those 3 TTP requirements, and to include in their contractual arrangements with their participants that they are entitled to use the TTP support items (and price limits).

That is, in the first year, providers can commence making claims using the TTP items from 1 July 2019, and will have until 31 March 2020 to meet the three compliance requirements. In later years, providers will need to be compliant by the start of the financial year, noting that the Benchmarking Requirement is met up until 31 December of any year by the provider’s intention to take part in the next Benchmarking Survey, and after that date by actual participation in the most recent Benchmarking Survey. Providers who become non-compliant during a financial year should not claim for TTP items while they are non-compliant.

Every support item in scope of the TTP 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, an example is given in the following Table.

Plan managers will not be responsible for ensuring providers are TTP compliant. They can accept the claim for a TTP support item by a registered provider as proof of TTP compliance. However, non-registered providers are not eligible for the TTP and plan managers should not use TTP line items to claim for services delivered by non-registered providers.There will be no formal registration process for TTP providers. Providers indicate that they intend to fulfil the TTP conditions by making a claim for a TTP support item through the payment system. They will be required to acknowledge compliance to the Price Guide terms, including the TTP terms if applicable, when submitting a payment request through the Myplace Provider Portal. By claiming TTP items through the NDIA payment system, or from a plan manager, providers are warranting that they have complied with the TTP conditions, or intend to comply with the TTP conditions by the relevant time.

Claims for the new TTP support items can be made against existing service bookings that were made at the support category level.
