What is Plan Management?
Plan Management is one of the funding management options available under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). A Plan Manager will support you with the financial administration of your NDIS plan. Plan Management enables you to choose to engage services from people who are not registered with NDIS, giving you greater flexibility, and purchasing scope for your funding. It involves your chosen Plan Manager, assisting you to develop your annual budget in line with your NDIS plan, and to pay for services you have chosen.
At The Housing Connection (THC), we understand how overwhelming it can be to manage a NDIS plan and budget, especially considering the various rules and regulations involved. This is where our role as your Plan Manager comes into play. Our primary goal is to ease the stress associated with managing your NDIS plan and budget, freeing up your time and energy so that you can focus on achieving your goals.
As your Plan Manager, we take on a variety of responsibilities. These include processing invoices from your chosen service providers, tracking your budget, ensuring compliance with NDIS guidelines, providing monthly statements, and preparing and submitting expense claims to the NDIS. By handling these administrative tasks, we ensure that your funds are managed effectively and efficiently and that you clearly understand your spending and remaining funds.
Another key aspect of our role is to provide you with support and advice. We help you understand the financial aspects of your NDIS plan, explain how your funds can be used, and guide you through any changes or updates to the NDIS pricing and regulations.
For more detailed information about how Plan Management works and how it can benefit you, we invite you to contact us using the form below. Our team is ready to answer any questions and provide you guidance.
It’s important to note that the NDIS covers the cost of Plan Management fees. This is funded under the Improved Life Choices category, meaning it doesn’t come out of your core support budget, and it is entirely funded by NDISat no cost to you. In the case that this category isn’t included in your plan, we recommend you contact your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to discuss adding it.
