A study to review the costs of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
The study will examine issues including:
- the sustainability of scheme costs; jurisdictional capacity (including the complementary disability services provided by the States and Territories);
- cost pressures (including wage pressures);
- changes in the agreed escalation parameters;
- whether efficiencies have been achieved within the scheme; whether there has been any impact on mainstream services; and
- examine the most appropriate levers to manage any potential cost overruns.
More detailed information can be found in the terms of reference.
The position paper is expected to be released in May 2017, at which point the Commission will seek further information and feedback.
The NDIS Study Report was on 19 October 2017.
