Plan Management is one of four ways you can choose to manage your NDIS budget, the others being self-management, agency-management, or a combination style. Which option you choose determines who handles the financial administration of your NDIS plan.
If you’re unable to prepare meals and shop for food because of your disability, the NDIS may fund meal preparation and delivery. This means that you can enjoy healthy, cooked meals delivered to your home.
