If you have not registered as a participant or would like more information about how the NDIS works, you can:
- Speak with a support person on 1800 800 110 or:
- Visit https://www.ndis.gov.au/
NDIS plans available:
If you choose to be plan-managed, a Plan Manager will be allocated to you and is funded in your plan and must be an NDIS registered provider. They will take care of all the finance and administration part of your plan for you such as, paying your providers for the supports you purchase, tracking your spending and taking care of financial reporting.
When your plan is managed by the NDIA (sometimes referred to as Agency-managed), you can choose your providers from the list of those registered with the NDIS. Your providers claim payment on the portal for your funding.
You can look on the Myplace portal to see what claims providers are making against your NDIS funding and keep track of your budget.
If you choose to be self-managed, you area able to have control, independence and flexibility in arranging and paying for your supports.The provider does not have to be NDIA registered, so you will have a much wider choice of who you can work with.
