01_062_0115_1_1 recognise that, from time to time, participants may require temporary comprehensive supports that are different from their usual arrangements. These are non-typical days and may include Short Term Accommodation (STA) in a group- based facility. 01_062_0115_1_1 may also include a period of respite, which aims to support ongoing caring arrangements between participants and their carers. STA/respite allows the opportunity for the participant to be supported by someone else whilst providing their carer with short term breaks from their usual caring responsibilities.

The support item 01_062_0115_1_1 include all expenses in a 24-hour period including assistance with self-care or community access activities, accommodation, food and negotiated activities. Typically, 01_062_0115_1_1 support item would be used for short periods of up to 14 days at a time (exceptions may be made). For longer-term arrangements, other options are likely to be more appropriate (e.g., Supported Independent Living or Medium Term Accommodation).

In cases where a participant will receive substantially less than 24 hours of assistance with daily personal activities, it may be appropriate for the participant and provider to negotiate a lower price than the maximum price specified in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits, based on the actual hours of support provided. This situation might arise, for example, if a participant enters a STA/respite facility in the evening, and exits again early the following morning. In addition, where a participant enters accommodation late in the day, 01_062_0115_1_1 may be appropriate to claim the daily rate for the day of the week that the majority of the support is provided.

Providers can only claim from a participant’s plan for a Short Notice Cancellation of the delivery of a support item to the participant if all of the following conditions are met:

  • The NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits indicates that providers can claim for Short Notice Cancellations in respect of that support item; and
  • The proposed charges for the activities comply with the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits; and
  • The provider has the agreement of the participant in advance (that is, the service agreement between the participant and provider should specify that Short Notice Cancellations can be
    claimed); and
  • The provider was not able to find alternative billable work for the relevant worker and are required to pay the worker for the time that would have been spent providing the support.

Claims for a short notice cancellation should be made using the same support item as would have been used if the support had been delivered, using the “Cancellation” option in the myplace portal.

There is no hard limit on the number of short notice cancellations (or no shows) for which a provider can claim in respect of a participant. However, providers have a duty of care to their participants and if a participant has an unusual number of cancellations, then the provider should seek to understand why they are occurring.

The NDIA will monitor claims for cancellations and may contact providers who have a participant with an unusual number of cancellations.
