If you are just starting out on your NDIS journey, or you may be some way into your plan but you are not happy with how it’s being managed, Plan Management with InFocus could be a better option for you. Plan Management is one of the four ways that you can manage your NDIS plan.
What are my options?
You have four options to choose from, they are:
Plan Management - you are managed by a registered NDIS provider like InFocus
Self-managed - you manage your own funds
Agency managed - the NDIA manage your funds on your behalf
A combination of the above
How do I get a Plan Manager?
If you think that Plan Management is the best option for you, at your planning meeting, let the NDIA know that you would like a Plan Manager to support you. Funding will be included in your plan to pay for a Plan Manager. This funding is separate from other services and supports in your budget.
If you are part-way through your plan and you want to change to Plan Management, you can. Contact the NDIA on 1800 800 110 to discuss how you can include Plan Management in your plan.
Once you have connected with a Plan Manager, you will need to get a service agreement in place. A service agreement outlines:
What if I’m not happy with my current Plan Manager?
If you already have a Plan Manager but you would like to switch to another NDIS registered Plan Management provider, you need to notify your current Plan Manager. They should provide information about your plan and help you to change.
