Compare NDIS Plan Features
We have pieced together a brief overview of the 3 different ways you can manage your plan funding and types of supports.
Here are the 3 different ways plan funding can be managed:
- Plan-managed: My plan management provider will make claims and pay providers on my behalf for supports.
- Self-managed: I will claim funding from my NDIS plan to pay providers myself or my plan nominee or child representative may do this on my behalf. Providers will invoice me directly for supports I have received.
- NDIA-managed: Providers will claim their payment directly from my NDIS plan funds. Where supports are NDIA-managed, I can only use NDIS registered providers.
My funding may be managed in one or more ways and is listed with my funding.
Where a support is listed as ‘stated’ in my plan, I must purchase this support as described in my plan. I cannot ‘swap’ supports for any other support.
Where a support is listed as ‘in-kind’ in my plan, I must continue with my existing service provider as they have been pre-paid to deliver this service. However, if I have a concern about using my in-kind provider, I can raise my concerns with the NDIS.
Where a support is listed as ‘quote required’ additional information such as quotes and/or specialist reports will be required. Once the quote is approved, the funding will be made available in the plan.
