When it comes to choosing an NDIS plan management provider, the options can seem endless. So, it can be beneficial to exactly know what an NDIS Plan Manager should offer to enable you to make an informed decision. The more you know, the better choices you can make.
What Is An NDIS Plan Manager?
A Plan Manager is a disability support provider that works with NDIS participants to help navigate your NDIS plan and make the most from your funding. Their service is called NDIS plan management and is allocated under your plan’s Improved Life Choices budget.
NDIS plan management offers you the following support:
- paying your providers and handling all book-keeping
- tracking your budget and informing you if funds are low
- ensuring your funds are spent appropriately
- providing specialised advice on maximising your funding
- enabling real-time access to your budget
- liaising with providers to negotiate cost-effective rates
Overall, when opting for NDIS plan management, you need to ensure the provider offers all of the above as part of their service. But, how do you know where to start looking for providers?
Research And Advice
One of the first and best options when searching for an NDIS plan management provider is the NDIS website. Using the Provider Finder tool located on the myplace participant portal, you can search through all the registered NDIS providers by location.
Registered providers with the NDIS must comply with a particular set of laws, guidelines, and policies. So, you can rest assured you have the relevant qualifications and experience to provide you with high quality, professional support.
Another option is to look online for an NDIS plan management provider that services your area. For example, searching the internet for ‘NDIS plan manager near me’ should provide you with a list of local providers. Using this method, you can also search for online testimonies and reviews about a provider, which may help your decision.
And lastly, for a more personal perspective and opinion on reliable, professional NDIS plan management providers, having a chat with your LAC, other NDIS participants, or family and friends can be extremely helpful in choosing the right Plan Manager for you.
The Right Support For You
It’s great if you are completely satisfied with your NDIS plan management provider. After all, they are the people who will be helping you manage your funding. So, you need to rely on their ability to handle your budget effectively and pay your providers on time.
A big step toward building this trust is your Plan Manager’s ability to understand your goals and work cohesively with you to achieve them. You will know your Plan Manager is invested in your progress when they go above and beyond to help you reach your goals.
