Yes you can. Being plan managed you can choose any provider whether they are registered with NDIS or not. You can also save your time commitment of paying bills and stress of keeping all financial records for up to 5 years that comes with self-management.
As a plan managed participant, you choose the services you use, the providers you engage, and how much of your budget you allocate for them. You maintain total control over when and how those services are delivered.
Do I get my budget health checkup?
We monitor the health of your budget and manage expectations, helping you stay on track to manage your budget to achieving your goals.
How Plan Management Works?
- You access services and your providers or you send us invoices.
- We claim from the NDIS and pay the providers on your behalf.
- If you are required to pay for anything upfront, simply provide us with the receipts and we will reimburse you directly.
- We send you monthly statements to help you track your plan spending.
How do I know the processing and payment of invoices to the providers?
We will inform you of every invoice we process, so you're able to review and stay fully up-to-dated with NDIS support budget spending.
How can I assure security of the information?
All documents are securely stored for five years, so if you're chosen for an audit, we have you covered. No one outside our teams have access to your information.
