This top-up supplement is for providers of Home Care Packages (HCP).
What is the supplement?
This supplement tops up the dementia and cognition supplement. It’s for people who had an EACH-D package before transferring to a home care level 4 package plus dementia and cognition supplement.
This supplement ensures any change in funding levels does not disadvantage those people under the HCP.

The top-up supplement is paid to providers on behalf of eligible care recipients who received an EACH-D package before 1 August 2013.
