Did you know there are three ways to manage your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan?
Here is a quick and simple comparison to explain what they are.
You can choose any service provider and you aren’t bound by NDIS Pricing Arrangement and Price Limits (which is the price range the National Disability Insurance Agency – or NDIA – sets out for services).
Comes with a lot of administration, like opening a separate bank account, paying your service providers (usually out-of-pocket first), and keeping records of receipts and invoices for up to five years.
The NDIA manages your plan and your budget.
You can only choose NDIS-registered service providers, which reduces your choice and control over those you want to work with.
Similar to self management – but without time-consuming paperwork or the daily hassle of administration. Being plan managed means you can use both registered and non-registered service providers, so there are no limits on which ones you can work with.
We can’t speak for other plan managers – but with localised service, swift payment of invoices, a team of experts in your corner to help you to maximise your plan, and the ability to track spending and start new claims on the go (at My Plan Manager that all costs you nothing) – we’re hard-pressed finding a con!
