What Is an NDIS Plan Manager?

An NDIS plan manager is an independent disability support provider who works closely with multiple NDIS plan participants to maximize the value of their plan funds. The individual assigned the responsibility of managing the plans understands the importance of each participant having access to the necessary information and tools to facilitate their recovery. The individual also knows the value of consistent participation by the individuals participating in their plan. To ensure that the plan continues to be successful, their service is known as improving life choices, or NDCIS Plan Management.

There are many benefits to hiring managers for your National Disability Insurance plan. While most plans offer training and support through the written word, some require more on the job training, such as in-person sessions. Managers can help you overcome obstacles by providing you with the necessary information and tools to navigate the often time-consuming paperwork involved with obtaining your National Disability Insurance. Managers will also save you time by focusing your attention on the tasks at hand. Most often, they will assist you with completing your paperwork using easy-to-understand, step-by-step guidelines.

In addition, most NDSP plan managers are trained to work with both your written and verbal communication. Some support groups have experienced success when their members use a combination of the two forms of communication. This allows them to effectively communicate with their clients and support staff to ensure that their clients receive the maximum benefit from their disability plan services.

To become a qualified NDIS plan manager, you must first obtain certification from one of the many National Disability Insurance Association (NDIA) approved training programs. Once you have met the necessary training requirements, you can enrol in a program that best suits your needs and is offered by a local or national disability insurance association. These programs are designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to manage their own NDI accounts efficiently.

Once you have enrolled in the training program, you must gain a comprehensive understanding of the role of an NDIS plan manager. Essentially, they are responsible for the overall management of your account. You will need to take an active role in the funding and application process for your NDI. They will also be responsible for managing your earnings, which includes allocating suitable work hours and determining when and how much you should be paid. Depending on your specific needs, you may also be required to develop and implement employment opportunities and related documentation.

In addition to managing your NDI accounts, plan managers also work closely with your local or regional support network. As part of their job duties, they prepare all documentation necessary to submit to your insurance company. For example, they must generate your medical and financial records and set up a timetable for when payments are to begin and complete. This includes documenting any out-of-pocket expenses you incur during the process. Managing the paperwork involved in these processes is one of the primary tasks of a qualified NDIS plan manager.
