For participants in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), managing their plans and funding can be complex and overwhelming. This is where a Plan Manager comes in, providing support and guidance to NDIS participants to help them manage their budgets and access the services they need.

A Plan Manager is an independent provider who is registered with the NDIS to manage a participant’s plan funding on their behalf. This means that they take care of the financial aspects of a participant’s plan, including paying service providers and managing invoices and receipts. This can be a great relief to NDIS participants who may find managing their funding and payments overwhelming or confusing.

The role of a Plan Manager is to work closely with NDIS participants to help them make the most of their plan funding. They provide advice and guidance on how to use the funding to achieve the best possible outcomes and help participants keep track of their spending. This can be especially helpful for participants who have complex needs or require multiple services and supports.

A Plan Manager can also help participants to access services that may not be covered by their plan funding. They can help participants navigate the process of requesting additional funding or making appeals if their needs change or if they are not happy with their plan.

One of the key benefits of working with a Plan Manager is that it gives participants greater choice and control over their services and supports. Participants can choose the service providers they want to work with and have more flexibility in how they use their funding.

Another benefit of working with a Plan Manager is that it can save participants time and stress. Managing a plan and coordinating payments and invoices can be time-consuming and stressful, especially for participants who are also managing complex health needs. A Plan Manager can take on these tasks, giving participants more time and energy to focus on their health and wellbeing.

In summary, a Plan Manager is a valuable support for NDIS participants, helping them to manage their plan funding and access the services they need to live their lives to the fullest. By working closely with participants, a Plan Manager can help them make the most of their funding, increase their choice and control over their services and supports, and reduce stress and confusion around managing their plan.
