How do you submit an invoice?
Invoices can be submitted directly via our payment portal, or via email email@example.com Please ensure all necessary information is included in your invoice, and it submitted in PDF, Word or Excel format in order to be paid promptly.
Do you need to be NDIS registered?
If your customer is using Plan Hero, then you do not need to be NDIS registered in order to get paid. See the requirements set out by the NDIS' Quality and Safeguard Commission's regarding the standards you need to meet if unregistered. Further information for providers can be found here
How much can you charge for your services?
The NDIS Price Guide outlines the maximum prices they have set for the majority of services and products. To ensure you are paid in full from Plan Hero, you will need to ensure your rate does not exceed this NDIS price limit. Our partners, My Care Space, make it easy for you to navigate the price guide and see how much you can charge for your services, click here for more info

How are invoices approved with Plan Hero?
Once an invoice has been submitted via email or the portal, the participant is required to provide approval for payment. It is our job as plan managers to ensure your invoice and services are compliant as outlined in our original Service Agreement, and according to the participants’ NDIS funding.
