Frequently Asked Questions (and answers!)

Can I use the NDIS Number Cruncher for free?

Yes you can – It’s available for anyone to use.

Are my details shared with anyone?

No. The NDIS Number Cruncher has been designed with your privacy and
security in mind. You don’t need to provide any personal details when you
use it, and no information is stored once you’ve calculated your spending.

Who is the Number Cruncher for?

Support Coordinators, service providers and participants will find the Number
Cruncher really useful and easy to use for NDIS pricing (state by state),
building and managing budgets, and organising and planning supports for
up to 3 years (the maximum length of a Plan).

What if I don’t know which category my support comes under?

If you’re not sure, start here with our blog on budget categories.

You can also use our Price Guide Wizard tool, to search the category and cost of a particular support.

Still not sure? Contact your Support Coordinator (if you have one) or send our friendly team a message via Live Chat.

Can I go back to edit a previous calculation?

To keep your information as safe and secure as possible, we have designed
the Number Cruncher so it does not save data. For your records, you can view,
take a screenshot, or download a summary of your calculations before you
close the browser window.

Can I report issues or errors?

Please message us via Live Chat here or from the NDIS Number Cruncher to
get a fast response to your queries. If you prefer, you can email any issues or
feedback to hello@plantracker.com.au

Why do I need to say what region I live in?

The NDIS sets different price limits depending on the state and region.
Mostly, support items subject to price controls, have a single national price
limit, but some capacity building supports have 3 limits or options; a national,
remote and very remote limit, depending on where the support is delivered.
To make sure you’re getting accurate information for your budgeting, use
your region and/or state.

Why did I get a price limit warning sign?

The warning sign doesn’t apply to everyone – especially if you self-manage
your funds. It is there to prevent you paying for things that are over and
above the NDIS Pricing Arrangements, which could leave you out of pocket. If
you are unsure, we recommend talking to your plan manager, service
provider or support coordinator.
