Many people find that the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be overwhelming and confusing to navigate.
"Blitzit provides an independent link between you, your service providers and suppliers, and the NDIS," Blitzit Plan Manager director Leane Carr said.
The service collaborates with people living with a disability - and their service providers - to deliver personalised NDIS plan management services, such as paying invoices and tracking budgets.
Their service gives the client total choice and control over how they use their budget.
"We have experts who understand every type of funded support and category code, meaning you don't have to spend weeks or months trying to grapple with the NDIS," Leane said.
"We take the time to understand your personal situation because we believe no
person living with a disability should miss out on the support they deserve.”
"And the plan management is covered in your NDIS budget, which means there is no cost for you to access this service."
Blitzit Plan Manager features a 24/7 live online portal that allows you to log in and track, manage and see the balance of your budget, giving you full control and transparency over your plan and funds.
Participants receive monthly statements and information about getting the most out of their funding.
"Our team of trusted plan managers keep up to date with the latest changes to the NDIS and budget so you'll get the right information, updates and answers to your questions any time you need it," Leane said.
"The aim is to make applying, setting up and managing your NDIS budget an easy and stress-free experience. We're compliant with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, meaning you'll never find us taking any shortcuts."
With more than 20 years of experience the caring and empathetic team promises to do everything they can to ensure you "live your best possible life".
"We've helped hundreds of people Australia-wide living with a disability get the essential support they deserve," Leane said.
"You will have independent access to NDIS registered and unregistered service providers around the country, with no conflict of interest, so you can make an informed choice about who supports you. And we work closely with support co-ordinators.
"We also simplify the process so you can avoid frustrating delays with payment. In fact, providers are paid within three to five days.”
"Our experienced team takes the complexity out of the NDIS and makes it easy for you, your family or your carer."

NDIS participants can now manage and track their NDIS plan on-the-go with Blitzit Plan Manager's free and easy to use app. They can view real time 24/7 budget tracking with easy-to-read graphs and stay up to date with the budget summary and funds spent. Blitzit Plan Manager director Leane Carr said she had been working hard to innovate and meet her participant's needs. "Launching the Blitzit App is extremely exciting as this means we can be sure all Blitzit participants have the absolute best features and resources, so they get the best from NDIS," Ms Carr said. She said the app - which is available for download on both IOS and Android phones - offers a secure login which allows participants to stay connected to their NDIS plan while on the go, any time, and at their convenience.
Plans to force NDIS participants into controversial independent assessments to cut costs have been scrapped after the federal government could not get the agreement of states and territories. NDIS Minister Linda Reynolds met state and territory disability ministers on Friday to discuss the sustainability of the scheme and seek agreement on controversial overhauls for how individual eligibility for access is assessed.
