What is the TTP (Temporary Transformation Payment) for NDIS Service Providers?
In the NDIS Price List (Support Catalogue), TTP stands for Temporary Transition Payment. This payment is available to support providers (personal care and community access).
This is a conditional loading (increase in prices that can be charged) to help providers with any costs transitioning to the NDIS.
This support replaces the TPO Payment (Temporary Support for Overheads).
How does NDIS Provider TTP work?
Each applicable support item has a matching TTP item with a higher price. It includes a loading (increase) of 4.5 %. This loading is 4.55 % in 2022 and will reduce by 1.5% each year.
In the support catalogue (NDIS price list):
- The non-TTP items should be used by providers who are not compliant with the TTP conditions.
- The TTP items should be used by providers who are compliant with the TTP conditions.
Here is an example of the pricing difference:
- Assistance With Self-Care Activities - Standard - Weekday Daytime - $57.21
- Assistance With Self-Care Activities - Standard - Weekday Daytime - TTP - $59.81
