PLAN MANAGEMENT

Auscare Support empowers you to maximise the outcomes and goals of your NDIS plan.

Auscare Support enables you to implement your NDIS plan in a way most suited to you and your unique situation.

What is Plan Management?

There are 3 ways that you can manage you NDIS funding:

  1. Self-management – The NDIA provides you with funding so you can access the supports that will best help you achieve your goals;

  2. NDIA (Agency) managed funding – The NDIA pays providers on your behalf; and

  3. Plan-managed funding – The NDIA will provide funding in your plan to pay for a Plan Manager who pays your providers for you, helps you keep track of your funds and takes care of financial reporting for you.

Plan Management is, in its essence, a financial intermediary function.  A Plan Manager is similar to a Bookkeeper.  

A Plan Manager is responsible for receiving invoices from a participant’s supports, drawing down funds from the NDIS portal, and remitting those funds to the organisation who have delivered the support service.  

Additionally, the Plan Manager will send monthly statements showing expenditures to date and remaining balances.

What are the advantages of Plan Management

Participants who choose Plan Management have a few distinct advantages:

  • You can buy supports from non-NDIS registered providers
    (like Jim’s Mowing, local community members or organisations.);

  • You don’t have to use the NDIS Portal;

  • You have a partner in navigating the NDIS and someone to help you make the most of your plan;

  • You have most of the choice and control of Self Management without the administrative burden;

  • Everyone is eligible to be Plan Managed; and

  • Plan Management is separately funded by the NDIS and is added to your plan.

How do you select to be Plan Managed?

At the planning meeting, a participant will be asked what their preferred mode of funds management is. They may specify a Plan Management provider at this point, or, alternatively, they can appoint a Plan Manager once the plan is approved. 

If you are self or agency managed, can you switch to Plan Management?

You can switch from self or agency managed to plan managed at any time. All you need to do is follow this simple process:

  1. Call the NDIS on 1800 800 110.

  2. Tell the NDIS representative that you would like to change your funds
    management to Plan Managed.

  3. Inform the NDIS that you want to nominate Auscare Support as your Plan Manager
