Government Funded Home Care Packages

In 2017 there is a new model of aged care: consumer choice. You are able to direct your Government funding to the provider of your choice, with spending as you choose, on services you want.

Did you know that you may be eligible for up to $48,000 each year from the government to fund home care services?

How much will the government provide me for my care?

Depending on the assessed need for the individual, the levels of Government funding available are as follows:


Level 1 = $ 8,045 p/year

Level 2 = $ 14,632 p/year 

Level 3 = $ 32,171 p/year 

Level 4 = $ 48,906 p/year

 

Government funding is a subsidy which has rules about how it can be spent and how much you can spend. You may need to make a daily contribution towards your care.

• It is important to note that the Government assessment determines the need 
• Rates above are accurate at November 2016

 

 

 

 

Case study

After her Aged Care Assessment, Mrs XXX qualified for a Level 3 package.
Choosing Prestige Inhome Care to provide her services, Mrs XXX pays a 15% administration fee, no upfront case management fee and no daily care fee. This leaves her with $27,345 to spend on direct care, (approximately 10.4 hours per week). With other providers she may only be left with $16,650 to spend on direct care (approximately 6.3 hours per week) the rest being absorbed by the service provider as fees.

Services available through your Home Care Package include:

  • Personal care
  • Nursing
  • Domestic assistance
  • Home & garden maintenance
  • Case management

Time tip: Complete your income tested fee assessment when you book your ACAS
