Source: NDIS Pricing Arrangement & Price Limits
A support is considered a High Intensity Support if the participant requires assistance from a support worker with additional qualifications and experience relevant to the participant’s complex needs. The high intensity price limits may be considered when:
frequent (at least 1 instance per shift) assistance is required to manage challenging behaviours that require intensive positive behaviour support; and/or
continual active support is required due to high medical support needs (such as unstable seizure activity or respiratory support).
