Transport Costs

 

UPDATED

16 Janaury, 2020

Recent changes to Transport costs occurred in the October 2019 Price Guide Update. What does this mean?

  • Transport funding is NOT flexible
  • Only NDIA-managed Transport can be claimed from the portal
  • If funding is paid to the participant’s bank account in instalments, invoices are to be sent to the participant for payment of these accounts
  • If transport costs exceed the amount allocated in the participants plan, these costs will be billed to the participant as an out of pocket expense
  • If a participant does not have a transport budget allocated in their plan, these costs are unable to be claimed from NDIA and will be billed to the participant
  • Transport costs include: vehicle running costs (only while participant is in the vehicle) billed at $0.78/km as per the Service Agreement & costs associated (e.g parking fee $5)
