Seize the Day Allied Health Business Owners! Responding to the NDIS Annual Pricing Review

Allied Health Professionals and Business Owners:  

Responding to the NDIS Pricing Review with more facts and less feelings is essential if you want the NDIA to understand the impact that rising costs is having on the viability of your business. We have drafted an NDIS Pricing Review Submission Template. Download it by clicking here to help you write a professional and high-quality submission and we urge you to share the link to the template with your colleagues.  

The opportunity for providing this feedback arises once every year and Allied Health Business Owners may have been guilty in the past of hoping someone else is responding and forwarding evidence on our behalf. WE won’t be making that assumption this time around. Given the outcome of the Annual Pricing Review consultation over the last 5 years we might argue that either the message that is being sent is not accurate or it’s just not loud enough. It is probably both.  It’s time to roll up the sleeves and reach for the keyboard. 

The 2024 Wave of Submission.  

We are going to change that this year. Aren’t we. Yes we are. 

Now is when we put the reality of the $ cost of delivering Allied Health supports under the NDIS in front of the NDIA. 

The Annual NDIS Pricing Review (APR) kicked off with the release of the consultation papers in early January 2024. The consultation questions are disappointingly bland, however we suggest you work with their consultation questions and then spice it up with your own story and fact file. The template we’ve designed will make all this clear in a few minutes time. 

To that end, the team at Nacre Consulting have put together a NDIS Pricing Review Submission Template Download it by clicking here loaded with prompts for facts and business impacts which we hope will support both your confidence and your capacity to respond to the submission. We get that this is another thing to do (but it’s really important); we know that a blank page is daunting (some structure usually helps) and we genuinely hope that this kick starts the process for you.

The Deadline for submissions is Sunday 3rd March 2024 

Click through to register for the template and it will ping into your inbox in seconds.  

Copy and paste the body of the letter to your own letterhead and complete the highlighted portions to the best of your ability. Provide additional detail where relevant and we encourage you to think broadly about each question.
