One of the most common questions we are asked is “how do plan managers get paid?” And we get it – how is it possible to outsource the administrative side of managing your NDIS plan, to expert plan managers, and pay nothing out of pocket for the service? It’s simpler than you think!
At your initial planning meeting, or plan review, you are asked how you would like to manage your NDIS plan. There are three options: self-managed, NDIA-managed, or plan managed (read more about the options here).
When you choose plan management, you are simply allocated the extra NDIS funding needed to pay for plan management services.
Once you’ve chosen your plan manager and have a Service Agreement in place, you simply send them your invoices for payment/reimbursement. They’ll take care of the rest, including all the record-keeping and budget tracking. They’ll also claim directly from the NDIS to cover the cost of their services.
Looking after the administrative side of your NDIS plan can be time-consuming and confusing. It’s a great comfort to know that help is available, at no cost to you, from experienced plan managers who understand how the NDIS works, and how to help you use every dollar wisely.
Using plan management shouldn’t feel like you’re handing over all control of your funding. Disability Plan Services is committed to being completely transparent with you about how your budget is tracking.
You are also most welcome to contact your plan manager at any time if you have questions. Our offices are open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. We are happy to communicate using your preferred method – whether phone, email or in-person.
Yes! You can switch to plan management at your next plan review. If you don’t have one coming up soon, you can contact the NDIS to request a plan variation, and explain that you want to switch to plan management. Our team can also assist you with this – contact us to find out how.
