What is NDIS Plan Management
Plan management is when a registered provider supports you to manage funding in your NDIS plan.
Under the NDIS a plan can be administered in three different ways –
- NDIA Managed
- Plan Managed
- Self Managed
Can you Be Plan Managed
Yes, everyone can have plan management included in their plan. In fact if you ask to be plan managed, the NDIS are legally required to provide the funding for it in your plan
How do I Switch my plan from NDIA or Self Managed to Plan Managed
If you are mid plan and don’t have a plan review scheduled anytime soon, you can still switch to be plan managed by contacting your LAC or the NDIS directly. Here’s how to make the change in three simple steps…
Explain to them that you want to switch to plan management. There is no specific eligibility criteria that you need to meet. You may still be asked why you want to switch. Explain your reasons (which may include things like wanting to access unregistered providers or wanting assistance with managing your budgets) as this will help ensure your request is processed as quickly as possible.
You will be contacted by the NDIS or your Local Area Coordinator when your request has been processed. If you’d like to be plan managed by our team here at Complete Money Management simply contact us once your request is approved. Give us a call on 1300 161 489 or sign up online to get set up quickly so you can access your support services and start maximising your plans funding.
