Plan management is a type of disability service funded through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
There is NO COST to you the participant – Plan Management is funded in your plan – but not from your supports.
The overarching function of plan management is to assist and support NDIS participants to manage their NDIS plan funding.
Participants can also receive advice from plan management providers about how to best utilise their NDIS plan funding which can assist in building a participant’s financial capacity and knowledge.
Plan management can support participants by:
- managing and monitoring a participant’s budget
- managing a participant’s NDIS claims and disbursing funds to providers for services delivered
- providing regular statements to a participant to show the financial status of their plan including prompt notification of over or under utilisation
- offering increased choice and control to a participant over plan implementation and utilisation through additional plan financial assistance.
