Understanding the Costs of an NDIS Plan Manager

If you've been considering NDIS plan management and wondering about the associated costs, here's the good news: there's NO cost for participants who opt for their NDIS plan to be 'plan managed'.

In fact, the NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) allocates additional funding to the "Improved Life Choices" category within your NDIS plan to cover the expenses of engaging a plan manager. So, not only is there no financial burden on you, but having a plan manager won't affect your existing plan funding.

So, how is a plan manager compensated?

When you first engage a plan manager, they receive a one-time set-up fee, which is added on top of your initial plan funding. Additionally, they are paid a monthly fee (also added to your plan funding) to oversee the financial aspects of your NDIS plan.

But how much does a plan manager get paid?

For participants in metropolitan areas, a set-up fee of $232.00 is standard, followed by a monthly fee of $104.00, covering the cost of assisting and supporting participants with their NDIS plan while managing the financial administration. For participants in more remote areas, a slightly higher rate may apply.

Importantly, none of these fees are borne by the participant, and they do not affect the funding within a participant's NDIS plan.
