The Queensland Competition Authority’s final report into Price Disparities for Disability Aids and Equipment identifies the many factors responsible for the often significant differences between local and international prices for disability aids and equipment.

We were directed by the Queensland Government to investigate:

  • disparities in the price of disability aids and equipment between Queensland, other Australian jurisdictions and overseas
  • the causes of any price disparities, including regulatory barriers, price discrimination and market power
  • actions that could be undertaken by Government to address the negative impacts of any price disparities.
