The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian government- funded program that focuses on delivering assistance and services to individuals living with disabilities. Its primary goal is to enhance the accessibility of necessary disability support, enabling people with disabilities to enhance their quality of life, reach their life goals, an actively engage in their communities. But NDIS can be complex, with a lot of paperwork and rules to navigate. Plan Management is a service funded by the NDIS to help participants manage the financial aspects of their NDIS plans, making the administrative process far easier for the participants.
Through NDIS Plan Management, participants can access the services of experienced plan managers who oversee the financial management of the participant’s NDIS funding. This involves handling the budget allocated for services and ensuring that funds are appropriately allocated to various service providers. It is important to maintain accurate records of this and ensure compliance with funding guidelines. Plan managers are also responsible for ensuring that service providers are held accountable for delivering the agreed- upon services. Plan Managers will ensure timely payment of service provider invoices for uninterrupted services leading to a seamless delivery of NDIS support. Plan managers make sure that the allocated funds are used efficiently by coordinating with service providers to avoid duplicating services and optimising resource allocation.
