What is NDIS plan management? Simply put, it is a document that provides how social security benefits and other such financial assistance are paid to qualified individuals who have been unable to work because of physical or mental impairment. Social Security Administration’s (SSA) website details several plans offered to people with various impairments. A detailed description of each plan is provided. In addition, an overview of each plan is given in this article. Finally, it covers the operational rules governing National Disability Insurance and disability plan managers’ procedures in applying for enrollment.
When applying for a National Disability Insurance (NDIS) policy, the first step is to contact your local SSA office. A management representative will assist you in filling out the application and in verifying the information provided. Next, your application will be held for review and approval or denial. Once all the necessary documents are in place, the management office will forward the application to the relevant insurance carrier.
As per the regulations, NDIS plan management managed by the NDI is solely the sole responsibility of the plan management company. The company manages the processing of claims and collecting payments from eligible beneficiaries. Beneficiaries can either choose to self-manage the account or seek the assistance of a third party company that performs the same tasks on their behalf.
The responsibilities of both the NDI and third party involved in managing the account includes: tracking the applicant’s progress, preparing the application for eligibility and ensuring the accuracy of the application. The NDIS plan management company also ensures that all the applicable procedures are being followed under the rules laid down by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Third-party companies may also provide additional services like budgeting, benefits administration, tax return preparation, Medicaid and Medicare claims processing and other plan management services. In addition, these companies may also provide additional benefits such as travel insurance, life insurance, disability income, and accident, health, and vision insurance.
To meet their objectives, NDIS plan managers must ensure that all the necessary paperwork is properly generated. All relevant documentation must be collected and maintained for future reference and submitted for review and approval. The service provider must keep a complete record of all the documents submitted and provide timely responses to queries raised by the client.
Apart from fulfilling their duties, NDIS plan management companies must also generate and maintain accurate ledgers and invoices. While preparing the NDI application, the plan administrator must prepare the applicable NDI claim statement and submit it along with all the related bills and supporting documents to the designated recipients. In addition, the appropriate forms shall be attached along with the bills and supporting documents. These bills and supporting documents support the correct amount of payment and services rendered by the company on the given contracts.
