Services Australia’s quarterly review of residential and home care fees will take effect from 20 September 2022. This process enables care recipients’ fees to be set to align with any changes in their financial circumstances.
Care recipients and providers will receive letters letting them know if there is a change to fees or if a refund may be due.
The quarterly review of home care fees will take place on 24-25 September 2022. The online claiming system for Home Care will be unavailable from 8pm Friday 23 September 2022 until 8am Monday 26 September 2022 as quarterly review tasks are undertaken.
The quarterly review of residential care fees will occur after the introduction of the Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) in October 2022.
Further information for Residential Care and Home Care is available on the Services Australia website.
