  • Can they come to your house?

  • What price will they charge?

  • Are they local?

What are financial intermediary activities?
  • Financial intermediary activities include such things as the organising of providers and their payment, the processing of expense claims, the development of monthly statements for participants, and claiming from the National Disability Insurance Agency or other funder

What are service intermediary activities?
  • Service intermediary activities involve a range of activities to assist the participant in negotiating and coordinating the provision of support. This could include sourcing providers, negotiating method and timing of delivery of supports and negotiating individual requirements as part of the support management

What does a plan management provider do?

Plan management describes the processes or organising the financial and administrative aspects of the plan, such as paying supplier invoices, developing service agreements with providers, contracting and paying provider, and preparing monthly reports on how funds are being used.

The participant may engage a plan management provider (business/organisation) to undertake the financial and administrative processes on their behalf – and to work in association with the National Disability Insurance Agency or other funder.
