Improved Payment Arrangements (IPA) for care recipients

This collection provides guidance materials for home care recipients on how Improved Payment Arrangements will affect them. This includes information for care recipients who self-manage.

Collection description

The Care Recipient and Self-managed Care Recipient fact sheets are guidance materials to help care recipients understand the changes to how their providers will be paid for their home care package.

A video for care recipients is available to provide an overview of IPA. This video will allow care recipients to gain a good understanding of IPA in a short period of time. Further details can be viewed in both care recipient fact sheets.

The Department has sent a letter with the Care recipient Fact Sheet enclosed to all home care recipients and their representatives. This letter is due to be received in early November 2021.
