Do you have questions about NDIS Plan Management and Plan Manager services? Find the answers to our frequently asked questions at Virtually Accountable.
What is Plan Management?
Plan Management supports you in managing your NDIS funds. Our Plan Management team handles the day-to-day administration that comes with an NDIS plan, such as processing invoices and keeping track of your fund balance. So Virtually Accountable pay all your providers on your behalf, with monthly statements sent you to view spending.
How much does Plan Management cost?
Plan Management is available to all participants, and the cost is covered by the NDIS – you just have to ask for it, this will show on your plan as Improved Life Choices (CB Choice & Control). This will increase yearly with the CPI (Consumer Price Index).
What are the benefits of Plan Management?
Plan Managers deal with all the tricky paperwork and administrative tasks related to your plan – like keeping track of your spending, maintaining accurate financial records, handling claims with the NDIS and making sure your providers get paid, tracking your spending and keeping a note of all your paperwork. They can even help you with a list of service providers in your area.
That means you can focus on the more important stuff, like realising the goals in your plan.
How do I sign up for Plan Management?
Easy! Just go to the signup page, fill in your information and we will be in touch. If you are a provider you can complete a Referral of Service (RFS) on your participants behalf.
What is the difference between unregistered and registered providers?
The NDIS asks service providers to register with them. However, not all providers choose to register. The main difference between unregistered and registered providers is that only registered providers can claim their invoices with the NDIS directly. Registered providers have been through the Auditing process and you can rest assured they are full accredited and trained in the service they are providing you.
Using a Plan Manager allows you to access an unregistered provider easily.
