Services Australia reviews the costs of aged care 4 times a year: in January, March, July and September. This ensures the cost of a person’s aged care services aligns with changes in their financial circumstances.
The next quarterly review for Residential Care and Home Care will take place on 16 January 2021 with a date of effect of 1 January 2021.
Services Australia will send letters to aged care providers and care recipients as soon as possible after the quarterly review.
The online claiming system for Home Care will be unavailable from 8pm Friday 15 January 2021 until 8am Monday 18 January 2021 as quarterly review tasks are undertaken.
