Portal updates...
This is a somewhat useful update for Agency managed participants, and horribly confusing for plan and self managed participants.

Your funding pie chart and list of support categories and budgets in the MyPlace portal has changed a little online. There is now an extra column. Here is a list of the four columns and what they mean.

1. Approved funds - this means all the money assigned to your NDIS plan at the beginning of the plan, and includes stated supports and stuff that needs quote, but only after the quotes have been accepted.

2. Spent funds - these amount are what have already been actually claimed and paid out of your plan during the current plan.

3. Available Funds: This is what's left in your plan and has not been actually set aside through service bookings, nor claimed. For Self Managers, this will always be $0 because Self managed support budgets don't have service bookings.

4. Allocated Funds: For Plan and Agency managed peeps, these are the amounts already locked into service bookings, but not the amounts that have been paid out (you can change service bookings). For Self Managers, this is actually your funds balance.

So really, I think that "Available funds" are basically your plan dollars that are not yet in service bookings for Agency Managed clients. Which might be useful.

They still haven't included a slider that shows where you are in the lifespan of the plan, so the other sliders are pretty useless (unless you get periodic transport payment, in which case you can use that as your "measure").

I wonder what's next? Wouldn't it be great if the NDIA shared a list of upcoming changes and "improvements"?

9news.com.au Warning over Optus email scam hitting inboxes across the country

06/12/2018

I quote from the report "the NDIS has not delivered on its promise – rather it has delivered less choice and control, a reduced quality of care, more confusion and less transparency"
We all know this at the ground level and hope that the 23 recommendations are taken up by government, quality and safeguard commission and the agency to improve the lives of people with disability - as was the original intent of the scheme.

The Upper House Portfolio Committee No.2 has presented its report for the inquiry into the Implementation of the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the provision of disability services in New South Wales.

Read the report here: http://bit.ly/2RAWTyb

The report calls for action to address the challenges of the Scheme’s implementation in the state and to provide greater clarity and certainty for people with disability seeking support outside of the NDIS.

The committee made two findings and 23 recommendations to the NSW Government either for direct action or for pursuit of issues through its role on the Council of Australian Governments Disability Reform Council.
