What is Plan Management and how does it work?
In a nutshell, a Plan Manager (PM) pays the participant’s bills on their behalf. The PM processes and claims invoices from service providers and at the end of every month, the participant and/or family receives a statement detailing what has been paid and what funds are left in the NDIS plan.
Having Plan Management included in an NDIS plan means greater flexibility for the participant. It means they can use registered AND unregistered providers of services which gives the participant more choice and control over who they choose.
