Myth 1: Plan Management is Expensive

One of the most common myths about Plan Management is that it is expensive. However, this is not the case. In fact, Plan Management is a complimentary service funded by the NDIS.


Plan Management providers receive payment directly from the NDIS for the services they provide, which means that there are no out-of-pocket expenses for participants.


Myth 2: Plan Management is Only For People Who Are Good With Money

Another common myth about Plan Management is that it is only for people who are good with money. This is not true. Plan Management is a service that is designed to help all NDIS participants, regardless of their financial skills.


Plan Managers can help participants to understand their budget, track their spending, and ensure that they are using their NDIS funds in the most effective way possible.


Myth 3: Plan Management is The Same As Support Coordination

Some people believe that Plan Management and Support Coordination are the same thing. While they are both important services provided under the NDIS, they serve different purposes.


Support Coordination is a service that helps participants to navigate the NDIS system and connect with the supports and services they require. Plan Management, on the other hand, is a service that helps participants to manage their NDIS funding and ensure that they are getting the most out of their plan.


Myth 4: Plan Management Limits Your Choice Of Providers

Another common myth about Plan Management is that it limits your choice of providers. This is not true. Participants who choose Plan Management can still choose their own providers, just like participants who self-manage their plan.


Plan Management providers can help participants to find providers that meet their needs and goals, and can also help with the financial aspects of engaging providers.


Myth 5: Plan Management is Only For People With Complex Needs

Finally, some people believe that Plan Management is only for people with complex needs. While Plan Management can be particularly beneficial for people with complex needs, it is a service that is available to all NDIS participants.


Plan Management can help participants to manage their funding, track their spending, and ensure that they are getting the most out of their NDIS plan, regardless of their level of assistance.


Conclusion

Plan Management is an important service that can help NDIS participants to manage their funding and get the most out of their plan. By understanding and debunking these common myths about Plan Management, we hope that more people will be able to make informed decisions about their NDIS plan and the services that are available to them.
