What is plan management?
A plan manager pays your providers on your behalf. This means that when you access the supports you need, you can arrange for the invoice to be sent to your plan manager who will pay the provider for you.
What are the benefits of plan management?
A plan manager can track your spending, lodge your claims with the NDIS and ensure that your providers get paid. By removing the burden of financial administration, you can invest more time working towards your goals.
What is the difference between plan management and support coordination?
Support coordinators assist you in understanding and implementing your plan. A support coordinator can work with you to find various supports to help reach your goals.
Plan managers will pay your suppliers and manage your plan budget.

I’m a provider. How long will it take for my invoice to be paid?
Invoices are generally paid within five business days from receipt and often quicker.
What is the difference between unregistered and registered providers?
A registered provider is required to meet quality and safeguarding requirements of the NDIS Commission. Not all providers choose to register. By using a plan manager you are able to access both registered and unregistered providers.
How much does plan management cost?
There is no additional cost to you if you choose to have a plan manager, as specific funding is included in your plan. We do not charge any additional fees.
You need to have asked for and received plan management funding in your NDIS plan. This is shown as Improved Life Choices funding in your NDIS plan. If you don’t have Improved Life Choices funding in your NDIS plan, you can request it in your planning meeting or review.
