Individuals can choose from three options when managing their NDIS funding:
The NDIA provides funding to the individual so they can access the supports and services that will best help pursue their goals.
The NDIA will provide funding to pay for a Plan Manager. The Plan Manager then pays providers on behalf of the individual receiving services and helps to keep track of funds. They will also take care of financial reporting.
The NDIA pays SCC (WA) on the individuals’ behalf.
Individuals can also choose a combination of options. For example, some individuals may choose to self-manage one part of their plan to start with and have the rest managed by the NDIA.
No matter how funds are managed, individuals still have choice and control to ensure services are right for them and fit within their budget.
