A Comprehensive Guide to NDIS Plan Management

A Comprehensive Guide to NDIS Plan Management

Plan Management is an NDIS-funded support that allows participants to access the services of professional experts called plan managers to effectively manage the funding in their NDIS plan. Managing your NDIS plan through a plan manager is not equivalent to either the NDIA managing the funding in your plan or you choosing to manage the plan yourself.

What are the benefits of working with a plan manager?

Plan Management provides greater choice and control to the participants as it enables the participants to access the services of both registered and unregistered service providers. Plan Managers will take away the stress of managing the financial aspect of your NDIS plan. They will ensure prompt payment of all your service provider invoices and give you regular reports regarding the status of your NDIS budget.

How do I locate and get in touch with a plan manager?

You can get help from your Local Area Coordinator, early childhood partner or support coordinator to find a plan manager who understands your needs and goals. You can also make use of the Provider Finder tool on the NDIS myplace participant portal. A simple Google search can get you a lot of information regarding plan management service providers in your area. Your friends and family can also help you in this matter.

What should I do after my discussion with a plan manager?

If you are interested in working with a plan manager, it is important to create a service agreement. This agreement is important to ensure that all parties involved are on the same page and that the plan manager will provide the assistance and services that are specified in
the contract.

Plan Management doesn’t incur any out-of-pocket expenses for you as it is funded in your NDIS plan under the Improved Life Choices category (CB Choice & Control).
