How to Change NDIS Plan Managers with Ease

Are you wondering how to change NDIS Plan Managers? We've got great news—it's a straightforward process that you can initiate at any time. In fact, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how hassle-free it is!

 

The Simple Steps to Change NDIS Plan Managers

 

Changing your NDIS Plan Manager is as simple as:

  1. Contacting Your Chosen NDIS Plan Manager: Get in touch with the NDIS Plan Manager you wish to switch to. They will guide you through their signup process.
     

  2. Requesting to Cancel Services: Reach out to your current Plan Manager and request to terminate their services. Typically, this should be done in writing, and your request cannot be refused. However, you may need to adhere to any notice periods specified in your Service Agreement.

 

If you're considering making the switch to Simplified Plan Management, don't hesitate to call our friendly team at 0491 090 747. We're here to assist you throughout the entire process because our mission is to simplify your life. We can even help you notify your current Plan Manager about your intention to change.

Do You Need to Explain Your Decision to Change?

 

Absolutely not! The NDIS is all about empowering you, the participant, with choice and control. If you wish to change your NDIS Plan Manager for any reason, you have every right to do so without justifying your decision to anyone.

Do You Need to Notify the NDIA?

 

No, there's no need to notify the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) when changing Plan Managers. If you already have Improved Life Choices (plan management) in your NDIS plan, there is no requirement for the NDIA to make updates.

Transition Time to a New Plan Manager

 

The duration of the transition depends on the Service Agreement you have with your current NDIS Plan Manager. In most cases, there will be a notice period that you are obligated to observe. Your current Plan Manager will continue their services until the notice period has concluded, at which point your new NDIS Plan Manager will take over.

No Need to Wait for a Plan Review

 

You don't have to wait for a plan review to change Plan Managers. If your current Plan Manager isn't meeting your needs, you have the flexibility to switch at any time, as long as you adhere to the terms outlined in your Service Agreement.

Cost of Changing Plan Managers

 

Changing NDIS Plan Managers won't come at an out-of-pocket cost to you. You can find further information in our blog post on “Understanding the Costs of an NDIS Plan Manager”.

No Disruption to Your Current Supports

 

Changing NDIS Plan Managers will not disrupt the payment of your current supports. Your existing Plan Manager will continue to pay your service providers until the notice period concludes. Afterward, your new Plan Manager will take over.

At Simplified Plan Management, we collaborate closely with you and your providers to ensure this transition is as seamless as possible.
