There is no cost for participants who choose to have their NDIS plan “managed by a plan.” In fact, the NDIA will allocate additional funding to the “Better Living Choices” category of its NDIS plan to cover the costs of hiring a plan administrator. The NDIS publishes new price agreements and price limits every fiscal year (July 1 to June 30) to reflect the new cost of services in the market. If the participant agrees, providers can adjust the amount of the weekly claim based on the number of weeks remaining in the plan and the total plan funds available to the SIL. Therefore, choosing a plan administrator that you can trust to provide all of this is extremely beneficial to getting the most out of your plan.
The new NDIS grief appendix lists support items that providers can request after the death of an NDIS participant. It's important to keep in mind from the start that there are no out-of-pocket costs involved in managing the plan. The NDIS grief appendix is not a separate document and must be read in conjunction with the NDIS price agreements and price limits. An effective plan manager will help you successfully manage your NDIS plan and maximize your funding as follows: The NDIS price agreements and price limits (formerly referred to as the “Price Guide”) contain a lot of useful information about what you can apply for with your NDIS funds and in what category you can apply for it.
NDIS participants' plans will be adjusted starting in July and funding will be indexed on July 10 to take into account these price changes. There are two elements in the current annex: one for plan administrators and one for supported independent living (SIL) providers to use in the event of a participant's death. In addition to helping you decide if you want a plan administrator to help you, they will also advise you on the process of hiring an NDIS management provider. First, during the initial planning meeting, you'll need to request that the NDIS administration join your plan.
