Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) in NDIS
VIVA Mutual charges TTP as per the NDIS price guide. This page explains what the TTP is, and why it was introduced.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) significantly changed how disability support services were funded and provided in Australia. The TTP was introduced by the National Disability Insurance Agency to help providers transition to the NDIS framework.
What is TTP?
Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) is an additional cost that eligible service providers can charge as they transition to working within the NDIS system.
NDIS implementation across Australia led to new funding arrangements for providers, including adjustments in pricing models. In addition, becoming an NDIS registered provider involved handling more paperwork and adhering to new regulations, which required time, resources and further cost.
The NDIS recognised that this transition might result in potential financial challenges for providers. TTP was therefore introduced to smoothen this transition and ensure a stable implementation of the NDIS framework.
Understanding TTP Payments
TTP is calculated as a percentage added to the base rate of specific services. It applies to support categories such as Assistance with Daily Life, Assistance with Social and Community Participation, and Finding and Keeping a Job.
Each year, the TTP percentage decreases by 1.5%. For instance, in the 2020/2021 financial year, the TTP was set at 6%; by July 2021, it reduced to 4.5%. This gradual reduction is expected to continue until July 2024, when the TTP payment will no longer exist.
