Many people find that the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can be overwhelming and confusing to navigate.
Blitzit Plan Manager is a no-cost approach that helps you stay in control of your NDIS funding.
"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."

Through the Participant Service Improvement Plan 2020-21, NDIS committed to making plans longer after Participants feedback showed they wanted more flexibility in plans and certainty in supports.
During the 2019 Review of the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (the Tune Review), participants told NDIS they wanted longer plans and fewer reviews.
We previously talked about the perils overspending may pose to your NDIS plan, but what many may not understand is that underspending can also present potential problems down the line.
Now that you have your NDIS funding, it’s time to spend and track it.
In the Australian Government’s effort to provide everyone with access to safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19, an initial roll-out of vaccinations began in late February.
Goals are the things you want to achieve with support from the NDIS and other supports and services. Setting goals will help you stay focused. Achieving short-term goals creates milestones towards your long-term goals, which may require more planning and time to accomplish.
