What is the role of NDIS Plan manager?
Every time you receive a service for your disability support needs, a service provider will have to send you an Invoice. When you have a plan manager assisting you with your NDIS plan, this Invoice will be sent to your plan management company. It is then their responsibility to check the invoice get your approval and then make the payment. Plan Managers are registered NDIS providers able to make claims for your service provider invoices via the NDIS portal.
Your NDIS plan funds typically last for a period of one year. The total services you commit to in a year must be planned and budgeted in line with your plan funding so that it does not get used up too early or sit there without being used. Hence, it is important that you or someone monitors your plan funding on a regular basis and keeps track of the expenses from your NDIS Plan.
NDIS Plan Managers do a great job by not only ensuring that your Invoices are paid on time but also assisting by keeping track of your spending. Their duty is to do accurate record-keeping and be available to answer your plan and ndis funding-related queries. They can also assist you to find registered ndis providers around you. At the end of each month, they must give you a balance statement to keep you up to date with your plan spending.
Plan Managers are paid by NDIS with your NDIS Funding. You do not have to pay a plan manager from your own pocket. The funding for plan management service is built within your ndis plan separate from the other funding. To pay your plan manager extra funding will be separately provided to you by NDIS. This funding is separate from your support plan funding.

You get the flexibility to choose both NDIS-registered and unregistered service providers. You have a helping hand with all the paperwork, and you have total choice and control.
NDIA managed: This option enables you to choose only NDIA registered providers, providers claim directly from NDIA. This means that most of the paperwork is handled for you by the Agency and tracking expenses in your plan is something you may find tedious.
