As of the 1st of October, the latest release from the NDIA’s Price Guide and Support Catalogue has been welcomed by the team at St Jude’s Disability services. We can now support you in claiming over 90 new disability-related health supports and in-line items which fall under the 5 new disability-related health support types
If your disability means you require support with health conditions such as dysphagia, respiratory conditions, nutrition, diabetes, continence, wound or pressure care podiatry or epilepsy; you are now entitled to claim consumables, direct assistance, and related technology supports.
Along with this release, the NDIA has changed the conditions for the classification of a ‘remote or rural’ town. The Modified Monash Model relies upon population density, rather than a geographical location to determine what is a remote or rural town. Touch base with us at St Jude’s to see if you fall within the new classified areas! A full list of areas can be found in the NDIS Price Guide.
Another important revision within the NDIA Price Guide and Support Catalogue is the revised descriptions for Therapy Assistants Levels 1 & 2. Our team at St Jude’s Disability Services agrees that the practical skills, qualifications, and experience are crucial when assessing the level of monitoring and suitable roles our valued Therapy Assistants can undertake.
