TTP stands for Temporary Transformation Payment. It was designed by the NDIS to assist providers with transitional costs and to fully implement the scheme without impacting the quality of services being delivered to participants.
Many disability providers have successfully transitioned over to the NDIS; however, it certainly hasn’t been without its fair share of hiccups along the way. Transitions are never easy, especially ones of this size. The NDIS is the largest social change since the introduction of Medicare in the 1970s!
NDIS Registered providers are subjected to the highest level of auditing, quality and safeguarding and strict NDIS Practice Standards. In recognition of this premium level of service and safety, the NDIS allows a higher Support Worker rate.
The TTP rate for the remainder of 2021 and 2022 is set at 4.5 % above the standard NDIS Support Worker hourly Rate. Over the next five years it is due to fall by 1.5% each year until the rate is no longer available.
LifeFul has been a TTP registered provider since March 2021. LifeFul receives the TTP rate as published in the NDIS Pricing Arrangement and Price limits (also known as the Price Guide) for supports provided in the community and in -home; in a variety of delivery settings. We offer highly skilled support staff for participants living independently in their own home, in a group or shared home environment, and in SIL and SDA setting. Currently, LifeFul have a Medium-Term Accommodation (MTA) housing option and have commenced our first Supported Independent Living (SIL) arrangement.
Please note that the TTP has no impact on the rates that we charge for Plan Management, Support Coordination or Therapeutic Services.
