A support worker travels for 25 minutes (30 kilometres) to a participant who is located in zone 3.

They provide two hours of support to the participant.

They then spend 25 minutes (30 kilometres) returning to their usual place of business.  Not Chargeable

In addition capacity-building providers who are permitted to claim for provider travel in respect of a support item can also claim for the time spent travelling from the last participant to their usual place of work. The maximum amount of travel time that they can claim for the time spent on return travel (for each eligible worker) is 30 minutes in MMM1-3 areas.

The provider and participant have agreed an hourly rate of $50.00, which is below the price limit for this item.

They have also agreed that the provider can claim for travel time and for the non-labour costs associated with that travel (at $0.78 per allowable kilometre).

The provider is entitled to apply the 30-minute time-cap against the 25 minutes of travel to the participant.

They are not entitled to claim for the time spent travelling back.

Because the worker uses his or her own car to drive to the participant, the provider has agreed to pay the worker $0.78 per kilometre travelled.
