Your plan can be managed in different ways.
You can self manage your plan, you can ask the National Disability Insurance Agency to manage your plan or you can ask for a Coordinator of Support.
If you self manage your plan, an organisation like Access2Choice or CarerSolutions can help with the paperwork (but you can do that yourself as well). You can also chose to self manage only a part of your plan and another support is managed by a NDIA planner or Coordinator of Support.
The NDIA planner manages your plan on your behalf and is directed by you.
A Coordinator of Support works closely with you to find the right services and support for you.
Talk to your Local Area Coordinator what is best for you during your planning meeting or plan review.
Access2Choice provides a platform for participants, their family or guardian to directly engage services of their own support workers as required to meet specific needs, without the burden of direct legal and administrative duties.
We encourage participants, their family or guardian to work with their support workers and identify the training and scheduling required to meet their specific needs.
On behalf of the participant, their family or guardian, Access2Choice Tasmania assumes the legal responsibility of support worker employment. Our responsibilities include payment of wages, taxation liabilities, superannuation guarantee contribution, worker’s compensation and insurances.
We work with participants, monitor funding arrangements and work with the funding provider to ensure the correct services are allocated to meet the needs of the participant.
We can connect you with the right case managers or facilitators for your requirements.
We give you peace of mind by verifying and meeting the legal requirements of employing a support worker.
If you require support, have a specific support worker you wish to use and have a funding source for that care, Access2Choice Tasmania can help you.
