How can I see if my budgets changed?

My budgets have increased.

If you find your support budgets have been increased, your next step is to update your Plan Tracker account. Follow this simple, step-by-step video tutorial to reflect any changes that have occurred into your Plan Tracker account for each participant.

 

 

What about my planned spending?

We will soon be sharing another tutorial walking through how to update your planned spending items, step-by-step. But there are some important things to note in the meantime.

  • It is important to note that although the new prices have taken effect from July 1, if you have service agreements with any providers that outline the prices to be charged as per the former Price Guide, these will need to be renegotiated before the higher prices can be charged.
  • For any participants engaging new supports, providers can now charge up to the new prices for all services delivered after July 1, 2018.

 

Thanks for reading & Happy Tracking!
