It all depends on how you manage your plan:
If you Agency manage then the payment will be made by the government directly to the provider who will supply the invoice on the myplace provider portal.
If you plan manage, then your plan manager will pay your providers on your behalf.
If you choose to self-manage your funds, the NDIS put money into your bank account after you've been invoiced by your supports, you can also be reimbursed if you have paid upfront.
At Provider Choice, we are a plan manager who can teach you how to self manage if you want. We see many families benefiting from both plan management and the transition to self management. If you're interested just get in touch at [email protected].
