The My Aged Care Provider Portal will open from 22 July until 11.59pm AEST 23 October 2019 for Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP) providers to upload the grandfathered client data collection template.

CHSP providers should have completed the data collection template with as much client information as possible. If providers do not have access to a client's Medicare number or Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) number or Centrelink Reference Number (CRN), all other client information should still be entered into the data collection template.

From 22 July 2019, CHSP providers will need to upload the completed data collection template and input service information for each client into the provider portal. A Quick Reference Guide is available to help providers with this process.

Detailed information explaining the grandfathered client data collection exercise was provided in the 27 June 2019 letter to CHSP providers.
