Health sector

The Aged Care Financing Authority (ACFA) has commissioned the Macquarie University Centre for the Health Economy (MUCHE) to explore the role of lump sum accommodation payments in the residential aged care sector.

Your organisation is invited to participate in an online survey, which will collect information on current and future use of lump sum accommodation payments within your organisation.

It will also seek your opinion on the future of residential aged care accommodation financing.

The survey should be completed by a person in your organisation that is familiar with its financial operations, including the use of lump sum accommodation payments.

All survey responses will be kept confidential and held on a secured server. The survey respondent and your organisation will remain anonymous to the research team, ACFA and the department.

Information collected from the survey will be used to develop key themes on the role of lump sum accommodation payments in residential aged care. These will be included in the final report from MUCHE which will be delivered to ACFA.

Please complete the survey which closes on 13 November 2020. The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.
