Auscare Support + My Spending Planner
Introduces My Plan Build
- Have you just received your NDIS plan and don’t know where to start?
- Are you feeling total confused about the cost of services and whether your plan will cover all the services you need?
- Do you get to the end of your plan and have unspent funds and do you have the information you need when you go to your planning meeting?
- Are you wanting to increase your skills in managing your plan and do you want to be sure your funds will last for the year?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then My Plan Build can change how you manage your funds for ever.
You will feel confidence in the choices you have made, spend less time doing paperwork, be able to see where your funds are going and most importantly, you won’t be feeling like you missed out on any services.
What is My Plan Build?
My Plan Build is a new service offering from Auscare Support + My Spending Planner. You schedule sessions with a Plan Build team member over the phone or via Zoom.
During your first session a plan is developed showing all the services you need and their cost. This is matched to your NDIS funds to make sure you are using all your funds and not going over budget.
Your Plan Build team member sends you a detailed report of the plan. The detailed report enables you to contact your services, Plan Manager or your Support Coordinator. Feel in control of how you are managing your funds and confident that you can get the results you want.
When would I do this?
There are some key times during your plan. At the beginning of your new plan, you will want to know how to allocate the funds over the life of the plan to ensure you have services for the duration.
You may be setting up service agreements with providers, giving them your frequency of supports, including details of the hours and days of the week.
In the middle of the plan, you might want to take a moment to check back in and see how your funds are tracking. Do you need to modify or increase the frequency of services or ask for a plan review? My Spending Planner documents the balance of funds, and the report enables you to show what it is you require.
At the end of your plan, prior to review, you will look back over your spending and how you have used your funds.
This guides your conversation with your LAC/ECEI and justifies the need for the same, increased or different combination of funds.
The My Spending Planner report gives you a detailed breakdown of your next activity statement. Make the most of the conversation with your LAC/ECEI and be confident in aksing for what you need.
How much does it cost?
We suggest the following schedule but we only charge for actual service time. If you need less or more than the below then that’s fine.
The package can be paid for by your core funding or support coordination funds. Cost is $60 per hour.
