Home Care Packages: Service Fees

HOME CARE PACKAGES

Service Fees

 

While the Australian Government provides the bulk of the funding for HCP home care services, customers are still required to contribute a basic daily fee contribution.

The amount of your basic daily fee contribution will be determined by the Australian Government. It will depend on the level of your Home Care Package and equal a percentage of the single basic Age Pension.

If you are a part-pensioner or self-funded retiree, an income-tested fee may also be applied to the basic daily fee contribution, as determined by the Australian Government.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we care about your needs, not making a profit and can take your personal circumstances into account when determining your fee amount. If you are experiencing financial difficulties, your fees may be reduced.

Effective from 22 March 2021 and subject to review.
