Having the flexibility to make decisions about the services and supports your child uses under their NDIS plan is a core principle of the NDIS. A plan manager can make this as simple as possible while still giving you more flexibility from a wide range of providers, with better outcomes for your child and you.
What is Plan management?
Plan management gives you more flexibility with less admin. Your plan manager receives the invoices for the services and pays them for you. They keep records of all your payments and can help you maximise your plan’s funds. It’s up to you.
You can easily request to be plan managed and it’s paid separately from your NDIS plan so it won’t affect your support funds in anyway.
Why should I switch to plan management?
Optimising use of your funding will help maximise the benefits of being an NDIS participant.
Your plan manager will help manage the funds in your plan and can provide guidance to you so you can utilise your NDIS funds most effectively.
It means you get to use the services and supports from your preferred NDIS providers but without the administrative burden of paying invoices and keeping records.
