Geelong Disability Plan Management Services.
There are three types of funding management within the NDIA:
- Agency Management
- Plan Management
- Self Managed
With the “Agency Management” the NDIA look after all the bills but restrict your choice of provider or services to registered providers only. With the “Self Managed Plan” you get to choose the provider and services you use but then have to look after all the financial management side of your plan. The “Plan Management” provides the best of both worlds, it lets you choose the providers and services you want and still have the financial side looked after by registered plan managers who are answerable you and the NDIA.
Plan Management is the best of both worlds
Plan Management is available to all NDIS participants – you just need to ask for it at your next planning meeting. When plan management is included in your NDIS plan it is at no cost to you, extra funding is allocated under the Improved Life Choices capacity building category.
The best thing about plan management is that you get to choose whoever you wish to provide services to you. As long as the service fits into your funded support categories and is under the price limit for that support you can choose it and that is the end of it. You do not have to worry about how the provider is paid as the plan manager will look after all the bills and invoices.
In addition to paying your providers on a timely basis, we help participants and carers navigate their NDIS path.

If you want the freedom of a broader choice in service providers without the administrative burden of managing financial paperwork, then Plan Management could be the best option for you.
We also offer free Portal Training for all our participants and their nominees so you can see how your plan is working. Its surprises me how many parents, carers or participants never really get shown how to use their own NDIA portal to view what is actually happening with their funding.
This is such an important part of being a participant to the scheme and have choice and control over what is happening within your plan. Simple steps on viewing your budget will help you have a better understanding what is going on with funds being allocated and spent.
Your NDIS Plan shouldn’t be stressful or confusing.
Please don’t hesitate to contact Geelong Disability Services in relation to our Plan Management services or any NDIS enquiries you may have.
Let our years of experience in the Geelong Disiability Support Services reduce the stress and anxiety.
