We are seeking your feedback on two proposed alternative models for allocating residential aged care places that encourage greater consumer choice. Your suggestions for other allocation models are also welcome.

Visit the department's Consultation Hub to view the discussion paper and provide feedback through the online survey closes on Friday 13 September, 11.59 pm (AEST).

Your input is important in ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the potential impacts of moving to an alternative model. We want to hear from all interested stakeholders.

Thank you to those who provided feedback at the recent consultation forums held across Australia. This will be considered alongside responses to the online survey.

No decisions have yet been made about any changes to the Aged Care Approvals Round, implementation or transition arrangements. Your feedback will help to inform decisions on potential future reform.
