Is being Plan Managed right for you?

Plan Management is best suited for those who may not have the time, capacity or knowledge to be able to manage their NDIS budget, use the online government interface and organise their own supports.

Being Plan Managed means you don’t need to worry about having to pay invoices upfront nor having to keep detailed financial records for a number of years. We will do this for you so you can enjoy moments that matter most.

You don’t have to pay for being Plan Managed. It is funded in your plan if you request for it.

'Everything was in line, easy to use.’

‘They helped me a lot in understanding my plan, they also stay in touch asking me about my invoices regularly. They are very quick to respond. I personally think because they are a smaller company, they are very good and fast…’

You may ask…

  • Ease of use. We manage your payments for you, paying your registered and unregistered Providers, paying invoices, keeping regular accounts of your plan and ensuring strong filing history.
  • Control over your plan. You make all the decisions about your plan, we just do the work. Invoices are paid at your direction and authority.
  • Flexibility. Plan Management has most of the flexibility of a Self-Managed plan, without the financial (paying up front) or the compliance (documentation for auditing) burdens.
See our table of comparison for further details.
  • There is no cost to you! When you do select Plan Management as your management option, the funding is added to your plan. It is paid for by the NDIS, and it doesn’t eat into your other funds. Typically funding will appear under Capacity Building Supports Budget > CB Choice and Control of your NDIS Plan.
  • The decision is made in the Planning (or Review) meeting, where you inform the Local Area Coordinator about how you’d like to manage your plan. However you can change your mind once your plan has been approved or in progress. You just need to contact your Local Area Coordinator and notify them you’d like to change to Plan Managed.
  • Plan Management is funded in your plan, if you request for it as your Plan Management option. 
  • I have a new plan.  Simply contact South East Care to get yourself registered, by phone, email or online registration. 
  • I want to switch from another Plan Manager. You’ll need to give notice to your old plan manager that you are looking to switch, we then will be able to complete the transition quickly and with limited effect to your supports.
  • Changing from Agency or Self-Managed to Plan Managed. Contact your Local Area Coordinator to let them know, they will get the ball rolling. During this time, simply complete our registration process (phone, email or online) so we can finalise things on our end.
