This booklet has information on the fee arrangements for Home Care Packages and Residential Aged Care for people entering care from 1 July 2014. It includes some examples of how fees are calculated under the new arrangements.

The examples in this booklet use rates and thresholds from the March 2014 Schedule of fees and charges. While these rates and thresholds are now dated, the calculation methodology is still correct.

This booklet refers to a single basic daily fee for all home care package levels. Please note that as of 1 July 2019 the basic daily fee varies according to home care package level.
