NDIS Support Coordination
We want you undserstand and utilise your NDIS funding package to its full capacity. Respite Choices NDIS Support Coordination is your link to information, guidance and support.
Whether you just need a bit of help getting started with your NDIS package, or you need a continued service to manage your budget and the payment of services, Respite Choices can help.
Your Local Area Coordinator is the first point of contact for Support Connection, however Respite Choices can provide you a basic level of help and administrative support to get you “connected” in the NDIS. This might involve accessing your NDIS participant portal, engaging service providers, learning how to process payments using your funding and a range of other basics. This service typically invovles an initial setup and training, with follow-up support as required.
Over time, your needs and service requirements may change. When this happens, you can contact Respite Choices to review your needs and assist you with any of the changes to NDIS provider services, administration and processes.
Coordination of Supports
Our NDIS Support Coordinators are like your personal assistants. We review your NDIS funding package, your background and current needs. We listen to your preferences and learn about your goals. When we’ve got all the information and a clear understanding of all your support requirements, we make it happen.
As your NDIS Support Coordinator, we have strong links with local NDIS providers in the Macarthur community which makes accessing and scheduling services a smooth process for all involved.
With over 14 years of local experience Respite Choices has a depth of knowledge and insight to the various disability support and allied health services available in the area.
NDIS Plan Management
What is Plan Management?
NDIS Plan Management is slightly different to NDIS Support Coordination. Plan Management refers to the management of your NDIS funding, budgets, administration and payments for services. Think of us as your personal administration and bookkeeping assistant for your NDIS Plan.
There are three options for managing your NDIS Plan:
- NDIA Management
- Self Management
- Plan Management
For some NDIS participants, financial management can be a difficult and stressful activity, which may impact the participant’s ability to access services and utilise their NDIS funding to its full capacity. For these people, NDIS Plan Management is by far the best option.
No Cost for NDIS Plan Management Services
If your NDIS Plan has funding under the Improved Life Choices category, you are eligible for NDIS Plan Management services with no direct expense to you, and no direct impact to the rest of your NDIS funding package.
If your NDIS Plan is currently under “NDIA Management” or “Self Management”, you may still be able to choose a “Plan Management” option, which will give you access to this service at no extra cost. To learn more about this, please call us or speak to your Local Area Coordinator.
While you focus on your care, Respite Choices can focus on your NDIS budget and required services, to ensure that you have a feasible plan in place, that service providers are paid on time, and that you have control over your NDIS plan.
