The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has created opportunities for businesses to support people with disabilities, their families and their carers.
Many businesses are jumping on board to become NDIS Service Providers — providing a range of services for NDIS participants.
If you’re thinking of becoming an NDIS Service Provider, here’s a useful checklist of what you need to know.
Another important role in this scheme is that of NDIS Plan Managers. They effectively act as a middleman between service providers and participants to assist in managing their plan. Their role includes things like paying invoices to service providers on behalf of the participants.
The NDIS is surrounded by strict regulations and compliance bodies so, if you’re considering becoming an NDIS Plan Manager, you want to make sure you’re doing it right. Importantly, plan managers must be registered with the NDIS.
And, just like any business, you need a contract with your clients. Often, we call this a Service Agreement. NDIS Plan Managers need a contract, too.
This is where a NDIS Plan Management Service Agreement comes in. It sounds like a mouthful — so what does it even mean?
What Is An NDIS Plan Management Service Agreement?
If you’re offering plan management services to NDIS participants, it’s important to have an agreement between the both of you.
Generally, an NDIS Plan Management Service Agreement will:
- Limit your liability so that you won’t be responsible for anything outside of your control.
- Secure your payments to make sure that you’re paid on time for the work you’ve completed.
- Set clear expectations with your clients, so both of you are on the same page.
By having this agreement in place, you’ll save yourself from potential issues and misunderstandings later down the track.
