Rebecca opted to plan manage her NDIS plan. She asked for this option at her NDIS meeting. This allowed Rebecca to use her plan more flexibly. Rebecca was able to use a mix of supports to assist her.
She used some of her funding to engage a service provider to assist with her employment goals. With another part of her funding, she could hire her own support workers to assist with community access and in-home care.
Rebecca was able to use services found in her local community and decided to hire a local gardener and cleaner who have ABN's. These supports assisted her with tasks around the home she was unable to do herself.
Having a flexible plan meant Rebecca was able to choose a mix of different therapy providers. She used her local physiotherapist to assist with mobility goals. For Occupational Therapy, Rebecca chose an NDIS-registered provider who could assist with the Functional Assessment Report she needed for her plan review meeting.
Being plan managed, Rebecca found it really empowering to be able to check over the invoices she now receives from her service providers. It allows her to query the invoice directly with the provider, or seek support from her Plan Manager at Plan Navigators when she requires some extra help.
