WHAT IS PLAN MANAGEMENT?
Plan management is the assistance of managing your NDIS funding and providers. Through Budgetnet we communicate with providers about your invoice, request payment from the NDIS and pay it through to your service provider.
Plan management is really simple. Firstly, ensure or request that you have funding for plan management within your NDIS plan. Once you receive your plan get in contact with us, we will setup everything in our systems. Then when you receive your invoices send them through to us via one of our options, these include, Email, MMS and post.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
WHAT DOES IT COST?
As long as you have funding for plan management “Improved Life Choices” within your NDIS portal, there is no out of pocket costs to you. We charge a setup fee and monthly ongoing fees which is paid through the provision in your NDIS plan. This money doesn’t reduce any of your other funding category.
We operate in one of two ways:
- Standard – this is when you view and approve each invoice – you would have the provider send the invoice directly to you then you will forward to us either via email, MMS or post
- Direct from provider – this is where you approve us to pay invoices we receive directly from providers. You need to provide us with a list of the providers you will be using, and we will verify them and pay the invoices as received. Any issues with invoices will need to be raised directly with the provider.
