Devinder Singh, is the moderator of this panel discussion, and Michael Bink is one of the panelist who discusses, the focus of the independent review on the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), particularly its sustainability and the challenges related to pricing models. The conversation also introduces the Ability Roundtable and its role as a benchmarking group with a decade-long history in working with disability service providers. He provides insights into the rich data accumulated by the Ability Roundtable, offering a valuable lens into the not-for-profit space, although with less insight into the for-profit sector.

The discussion also addresses the shortcomings of the current pricing model, with the Disability Support Worker Cost Model being deemed broken and outdated. The absence of a cost model for therapy and support coordination, along with the use of a parallel market approach, is highlighted as problematic.

He concludes by suggesting that the NDIS review aims to address these issues and expresses concerns about the sustainability of the current system. The conversation hints at the need for changes in pricing approaches and models to ensure the effectiveness and viability of the NDIS.

Join us our next conversation, National NDIS Review Conference at Parliament House on 22nd March 2024
