The Importance Of Plan Management
Do you need the service of a plan manager?
A plan manager will be able to help you with all your tasks about financing of your NDIS plan and provide you liberty to make all the decisions without the hassle of doing all the paperwork yourself.
Having a plan manager will not give you any out-of-pocket costs, you will even be given access to great supports and services if you choose this option.
You need to know how you can get a plan management as part of your NDIS plan.
The thing that you should do if you consider having a third party that is registered to manage your NDIS plan is to request it during your appointment with the agency on your NDIS planning or during the time that your plan will be in effect.
How will you benefit from plan management?
The NDIS is still processing how it will be increasing its coverage on all disabled Australians and knowing how their funds will be managed is among the decisions that these people should be making.
The approval of the funding is just the first step of a very long process that at times can be really overwhelming. That is why it is important for you to know what is best when it comes to the management of your funds because it is really essential in having the most of the funds that are approved and accessing the supports. Even if the NDIS plan would require a lot of commitment and administration from your part, you should see to it that you provide those in order for the plan to work properly and help you achieve all your goals, remove barriers to participation, and enhance your life.
All of the participants of the NDIS plan will be offered with the agency managed funding as the default option. This would mean that the group or organization that will be providing the participants with services will be paid by the agency. And it is important that the service providers must meet the criteria and be part of the list of registered service providers of the agency.
Self management is the other option that you can choose – which means that you will be responsible in paying the organizations for the services that they provide you under your NDIS plan. This can really be a more flexible option given that you can choose the service provider that you want, but take note that you will need to be more committed on this since you will do all the paperwork, manage the budget, and keep the payment up to date. This option also mean that you will be paying the services and get your reimbursement later on which is really not easy.
The other option that you can choose from is a combination of all the great aspects from the agency managed and self managed funding options, the plan management, in which you are entitled to pay for a plan manager to make your life easier since you are a participant of an NDIS plan.
