All aged care providers will need to submit their online and paper claims to Services Australia as soon as possible to ensure prompt processing.
If your claim forms have missing or incorrect details, Services Australia will return them for corrections, which will delay processing. You can reduce delays by confirming your details before submitting your claim for payment.
For all enquiries please contact Services Australia on 1800 195 206.
