At YOUCARE PLAN MANAGEMENT, we care about you, your goals and aspirations. We know that navigating through NDIS can be a difficult and time-consuming process.

As your plan manager, we are here to take the stress out of managing your NDIS plan and budget so you can make the most out of it! This includes submitting claims to NDIS portal, paying your invoices and assist you with any NDIS related issues.

What is Plan Management?

Plan management is when a provider supports you to manage funding in your NDIS plan. These providers are known as plan managers. Plan management is different from having the NDIA manage funding in your NDIS plan, or you choosing to self-manage your plan.

 

You can also choose a combination of the three options. For example you may choose to self-manage one part of your plan to start with and have the rest managed by the NDIA.

Your ECEI Coordinator, LAC or NDIA planner will ask you how you would like to manage your NDIS funding during your planning meeting. They will help you choose the best way to manage your funds for your needs and circumstances.

No matter how your funds are managed, you still have choice and control to ensure your services are working for you and fit in your budget. Even if your funding is managed by the NDIA or a Plan Manager, you should regularly check the myplace portal and your funding to make sure your budgets are on track.

There are three options to manage your NDIS funding – self-managed, plan-managed and NDIA-managed.

                         SELF MANAGED

Self-management is when you manage your NDIS funding. It gives you the flexibility and choice to decide what supports you buy to pursue your plan goals. It lets you think creatively about how you can use your funds to best meet your needs.

If you are interested in self-managing all or part of your NDIS plan, speak with your Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or NDIA planner. You could also talk to someone you know who is self-managing about their experience or connect with a self-management peer support group.

The NDIA is committed to improving the experience for self-managers.

           PLAN-MANAGED FUNDING

The NDIA will provide funding in your plan to pay for a Plan Manager who pays your providers for you, helps you keep track of funds and takes care of financial reporting for you.

At your planning meeting you can tell NDIS staff that you would like a plan manager to support you. 

The NDIS will include funding in your plan to pay for your plan manager. This is separate from your other services and supports in your budget.  

           

                      NDIA-MANAGED

When your plan is managed by the NDIA (sometimes referred to as Agency-managed):

  • You are able to choose from a range of NDIS registered providers.
  • Your providers claim payment electronically from your funding.
  • You cannot use unregistered providers.
  • You can look on the myplace portal to see what claims providers are making against your NDIS funding and keep track of your budget.
  • The NDIA will manage your book-keeping and records of your spending.
