Service Details:

1. Eligible Costs:

    • Provider is entitled to bill the participant’s plan for the time that support workers spend providing the transport support. They are also entitled to bill for any non-labour costs associated with transporting the participant.
    • If a provider incurs costs, in addition to the cost of a worker’s time, when accompanying and/or transporting participants in the community, they may negotiate with the participant for them to make a reasonable contribution towards these costs.

2. Negotiation with Participants:

    • Providers should discuss and agree upon reasonable contributions for these costs with participants.
    • Where a provider is transporting two or more participants on the same trip, the worker’s time should be split amongst participants. This claim should be made using the relevant community participation support item and against the participant’s core budget

3. Reimbursements Rates:

    • For a vehicle that is not modified for accessibility, up to $0.97/km
    • For a vehicle that is modified for accessibility or a bus, up to $2.76/km
    • For other forms of transport or associated costs, such as road tolls, parking, and public transport fares, up to the full amount.

4. Claiming Process:.

    • These non-labour costs should be claimed against the relevant activity-based transport support item.
    • The worker’s time can be claimed at the agreed hourly rate for the relevant support item for the total time the worker provides support to one or more participants, including time spent accompanying and/or transporting the participant.

    Participant Outcomes:

    Participants benefit through increased independence and social participation. Enhanced access to community events and programs fosters skill development, networking opportunities, and broader societal engagement. The provision ensures that physical or mobility limitations do not restrict a participant's involvement in their chosen activities, promoting a more inclusive community role.

    Impact Statement:
