This supplement’s expansion component applied to certain providers of residential aged care before 1 October 2022. Funding for this supplement has been rolled into the new Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) funding model.
What was the expansion?
This expansion was for aged care homes that specialised in caring for:
- people with lower care needs
- homeless people (or those at severe risk of being homeless) with complex behavioural needs
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with complex behavioural needs
It provided extra points towards eligibility for the residential care viability supplement.
The viability supplement is no longer available for mainstream residential aged care homes from 1 October 2022.
