About Plan Management
Plan Management is the process of administrating the financial aspects of your NDIS plan, such as paying invoices, creating service bookings, developing service agreements with providers, contracting and paying providers and preparing monthly statements. It is like having your own NDIS financial planner, reducing the time and stress of managing your plan finances.
5 Advantages of Professional Plan Management
1. No Cost to You
Plan Management is funded within your plan under Improved life choices and is no cost to you. As explained by the NDIS, it will not reduce other supports & services identified as reasonable and necessary in your plan. If it is not in your plan, you can request a review OR make sure you ask for plan management at your first NDIS meeting.
Plan Managers are experts in supporting you manage your NDIS plan, and you will benefit from their knowledge and expertise. They have the required skills to navigate the NDIS system and are professional plan managers and accountants.
3. Greater Choice and Control
Plan Management ensures you have the flexibility of using your choice of services and this includes contracting services that are not NDIS registered, but a registered business with an ABN. Having the flexibility of working with both registered and unregistered providers expands your options in choosing service and support providers. You can engage any business in the community and keep using providers such as Physiotherapists, independent support workers and even cleaning services that you trust.

Some Plan Managers even offer online portals and real time access to check your budget and spending in real time. You can also track where and when your funding has been distributed.
