About the program
How the program works, who the program is for, who can provide home care services, and how packages are allocated.
Funding for providers
The Australian Government pays you a subsidy for each care recipient. Find out how these are calculated and when supplements apply.
Fees you can charge
You can ask care recipients to pay fees if they can afford to. Find out about the fees that may apply and how much you can charge.
You must do things like meet quality standards, use a consumer-directed care approach, and be transparent about pricing.
