NDIS Temporary Transformation Payment Rates

As of July 2019 CSS – Care & Support Services will be charging the NDIS TTP rate for their services.

The TTP (Temporary Transformation Payment) is an additional cost providers can charge as they continue to transition to working under the NDIS.

The TTP is a charge on top of the base rate price limit for attendant care and community and centre-based activities. TTP is set at 7.5 per cent of the support cost and will reduce by 1.5 per cent each year. This means TTP in 2020-21 will reduce to 6 per cent.

For more information see the NDIS page on this website or for a full copy of the NDIS Price Guide you can visit the NDIS website at www.ndis.gov.au
