Services Australia is upgrading their Aged Care Payment System (ACPS) on 20 August 2022.

The upgrade will support the Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) funding model due to commence on 1 October 2022.

To implement the new system, online claiming channels will be view only from 11 – 19 August 2022 inclusive. This means:

  • Claims must be lodged by 7 August 2022 to ensure they are processed.
  • Events (entry, leave, departure etc) and finalised claims cannot be submitted during the view only period.

To minimise potential financial impacts:

  • The August advance will be paid as normal on 1 August 2022
  • The September advance will be paid in mid-August 2022.
