The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)


The NDIA Price Guide is arranged into 15 categories that align to the purpose of the funded supports and the NDIS Outcomes Framework.


Broadly they are grouped by 3 main support purposes

  • CORE
    A support that enables a participant to complete activities of daily living and enables them to work towards their goals and meet their objectives
  • CAPITAL
    An investment, such as assistive technologies, equipment and home or vehicle modifications, funding for capital costs (e.g. to pay for Specialist Disability Accommodation).
  • CAPACITY BUILDING
    A support that enables a participant to build their independence and skills.
