Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP)

What is TTP and How Will It Affect Me?

In 2019, the NDIS Price Guide introduced a number of changes to improve sustainability of the industry. One of the most notable changes was the introduction of Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) rates. This meant that providers were able to charge a higher rate for services without affecting participants’ funding or supports.

So, what exactly is Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) 2020 / 2021 and what does it mean for me, the participant?

TTP is a 6% loading (2020 / 2021) on top of the base price limit laid out in the NDIS Price Guide. TTP rates are included in the support catalogue as separate line items.

In a nutshell:

  • TTP is a 6% loading that is applied to the base rate
  • New plans as of this financial year have already increased to accommodate the yearly indexation and TTP loading
  • TTP will remain in place for the next 4 years, decreasing by 1.5% every year from next financial year

TTP replaced Temporary Support Overheads (TSO) loading, which was put in place initially for providers to be able to cope with costs associated with transitioning from block funding to NDIS funding. Even with this in place, many providers have had trouble operating at current and previous price points.

There are a number of contributing factors that have caused this strain on providers, including: higher overheads since NDIS rollout, challenges adapting to unit pricing from block funding, lower utilisation of workers and higher labour costs.

With TTP funding, we’re optimistic that the industry can begin to stabilise, giving clients security that their much-needed services will be delivered sustainably for the foreseeable future.
