Charging for Home Care Package services

If they can afford to, people receiving government-subsidised home care are expected to help with the cost by paying fees. We changed the way we calculate fees on 1 July 2014. These changes do not apply to people who started home care before that date.

Improved Payment Arrangement (IPA) update

Due to the implementation of Phase 2 of IPA, the contents on this page are currently under review.

We encourage you to check the Improved payment arrangements for home care webpage, to access information about how this initiative impacts delivery of the Home Care Program.

Note: We do not have access to all documents created by, received by, or stored by other government entities.
