Review of Pricing Arrangements in Residential Aged Care
I am pleased to present the Report of the Review of Pricing Arrangements in Residential Aged Care.
The main focus of the Review has been on the long-term prospects for the industry bearing particularly on sources of funding and pricing arrangements. An extensive array of matters has been taken into consideration including user contributions, relationships between residential care and other aged care programs, structural and regulatory matters, including disincentives, as well as the role of markets.
The document contains recommendations for the short, medium and long term. It is envisaged that those recommendations for the short and medium term would be considered for implementation before 2008. I have also included a number of long term options for consideration.
