Each year, the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) reviews the prices of NDIS supports. As stated in our Service Agreement, DPV Health adjusts prices in line with these pricing reviews.

Please note that the NDIA also increases the funds available in each participant’s NDIS plan if the prices of their supports have changed. This ensures that the same number of hours are available for participants to use.

For current information on NDIS support prices, please see the NDIS Price guides and pricing

If you have any questions, please contact our NDIS Engagement Officers at NDIS@DPVHealth.org.au .

The NDIS cannot fund a support that is:

  • the responsibility of another government system or community service
  • not related to a person’s disability
  • relates to day-to-day living costs that are not related to a participant’s support needs, or
  • is likely to cause harm to the participant or pose a risk to others.
