One of the biggest decisions you and your family will need to make is how to manage your NDIS budget.
The process of budgeting, keeping records and paying for supports outlined in your plan is called ‘plan management’. How a budget is managed determines how your supports and services are paid and in some cases what providers you can choose from to deliver the support services you need.
There are a few plan management options and there is no right or wrong way – you can choose which option best suits your situation.
The options include:
You can change your plan management option at any time, but you will need to let the NDIA know.
With any plan management option, it’s a good idea to develop and maintain a list of providers who will deliver the supports you need, their contact details and any other relevant information such as budget reference numbers.
