Claim Process for Plan-Managed Clients in Comm.care

In this article, we will help you figure out how claims for Plan-Managed participants are done and how Comm.care streamlines your claims and payment process and helps you get paid easily. 

For Plan managed participants, you have to send a standard invoice to the Client’s Plan Manager and they will pay for your services directly. The invoice needs detailed support logs and subtotals for each NDIS line item and will be submitted by the Plan Manager to the NDIS Myplace portal. Therefore, your Organisation has to create invoices and send them to the participant’s Plan Manager.

To get paid, you must provide the following information as evidence of your support delivery to the Plan Manager, when requested: 

  • approved service agreement containing the schedule, cost, quantity, type, and quality of supports to be delivered and their location; as well as the expected outcomes for the participant 
  • approved quotes as appropriate
  • evidence of support quantity 
  • evidence of support type 
  • staff rosters
  • final report or assessment

Depending on the nature of your support service, additional documentation guidelines may apply and be requested as part of the Provider Payment Assurance Program. Let’s see how to handle all of this with just a few clicks on Comm.care;

Email all the invoices to Plan Managers 

  • On Filter Progress Notes by purpose select 3.2 Send Email
  • Click on the blue button: Generate report. The application will list all the unsent claims with Progress Notes delivered between the Occurrence date filter.
  • Click on the button Action > Email Invoices to Plan Managers.  The application will send the invoices to each Plan Manager and participant if CCed according to the configured Recipient on Circle's Roadmap. Learn more about the Roadmap of Support.

Export Invoices to your Accounting system (MYOB/Xero) 

  • On Filter Progress Notes by purpose select 3.3 Export Claims.
  • Click on the blue button: Generate report. The application will list all the claims that are emailed but not exported to the Accounting system.
  • Click on the button Action > Export as accounting file. The claims (NDIS Invoices) will be downloaded. It is already in MYOB, Xero or Quickbooks format with the correct data, you just need to upload it into your accounting system for invoice reconciliation.

Note: If you click the Download CSV option, the file will be downloaded in the same format as the accounting file, but the system would not pick those claims as exported. In short, Comm.care will not be able to track the exported claims as you have just downloaded and not exported. When you are ready to export to PRODA, you should select the Export as accounting file option.
