The Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt AM, has appointed John Dicer as the new Aged Care Pricing Commissioner.
The office of the Aged Care Pricing Commissioner was established in 2013 to help ensure that people requiring aged care places are not over charged.
“Older Australians need to be sure that when they need residential aged care support they are paying a fair price,” Minister Wyatt said.
“I’m pleased to appoint John Dicer as Australia’s new Aged Care Pricing Commissioner.
“John brings with him broad public and private sector experience including a strong background in regulatory matters, compliance, risk management and complex pricing issues.”
Mr Dicer has qualifications in law and economics and has held the role of General Counsel with Airservices Australia, the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Innovation and Science, the Rail Access/Rail Infrastructure Corporation and the Olympic Co-ordination Authority.
“I extend my sincere thanks to Kim Cull, for her excellent service as the Aged Care Pricing Commissioner since 2013,” Minister Wyatt said.
“She focussed steadfastly on protecting consumers and standing up for the interests of older Australians.”
