Start your journey with us in 3 easy steps
My Disability provider is committed to making your referral as simple as possible.
A treating professional, Family member can make referrals, Participants themselves or anyone involved in care.
There are three categories to manage your NDIS funding–Self-managed, NDIS plan-managed and NDIA-managed. You can also combine options.
For instance, you might choose to self-manage some of your supports to start with and have the rest managed by the NDIA.
Self-managing your funds gives you independence and flexibility in managing your support and services. The complete responsibility and the control fall on you.
If you self-manage, you are responsible for purchasing supports & services within your budget. Purchases must be in line with the intent of your funding and help you achieve the goals you have identified in your plan.
If you decide to self-manage, you can:
- Choose who provides the supports in your plan—they can be an NDIS registered provider or an unregistered provider.
- Employ your staff or pay someone else to employ them on your behalf. Family members cannot be employed as staff to provide support to you.
- Purchase more supports using any savings you make by arranging your services, provided they are in line with what is agreed in your plan.
There are additional requirements and responsibilities for people who self-manage their funds, including record keeping, acquittals and payment of provider invoices. Several obligations and responsibilities also apply to participants choosing to employ their staff.
If you choose to use a Plan Manager, they will be funded in your plan. They will pay your providers for the supports you purchase, help you keep track of your funds and do any financial reporting for you. You can do the same things as if you were self-managing, except a Plan Manager pays the bills for you. Depending on your circumstances and the type of support in your plan, a Plan Manager can also help you find providers.
Your Plan Manager must be an NDIS registered provider. They will claim directly from the budgets in your plan to pay your providers on your behalf.
When the NDIA manages your plan, you can choose from a range of NDIS registered providers. Your providers claim payment electronically from your funding. Unregistered providers are not allowed.
You can look on the myplace portal to see what claims providers are making against your NDIS funding and keep track of your budget.
We value our relationship with you. If you have any concerns about the referral process, please let us know by contacting us directly via phone on 0387 163 720 or via email at Enquiries@mydisabilityprovider.com.au.
