Changes to NDIS plan review process
What this means for you is that your NDIS plan will be discussed over the phone with the intention of the NDIA simplifying the planning process that goes with developing and reviewing your NDIS plan.
You need to be aware of the changes to the plan review process. If you need additional funding in your plan let the NDIA representative know.
Otherwise, your plan will now only be reviewed every two years.
We suggest you discuss this with your support person and/or support coordinator so you’re really familiar with your entitlements within your plan for when the NDIA representative calls you.
We are aware this new procedure will work well for people whose plans meet their needs and require no adjustment to their plan.
However, we’re offering some tips to support you with the process;
Tip 1 – Don’t feel rushed
You are under no obligation to take the check-in call if you feel underprepared. You are well within your rights to ask the NDIA representative to call back at a time that suits you, when you are prepared, and/or when your support person is present if required.
Tip 2 – Discuss budget shortfalls
Let the NDIA representative know if you have run short of funding and explain why this has occurred
Tip 3 – Tell the NDIA about any changes in your circumstances
The NDIA needs to know about any changes in your circumstances that impact your situation so you can receive the best outcome from your NDIS plan. Alternatively you can discuss your NDIS plan with the NDIA at any point, read the NDIS information: Changing your plan
