    Additional Home Care Package Fees

    chevron Created with Sketch.

    The below fees only apply to individuals on a Home Care Package. They do not apply to you if you are paying for your services privately or through another funding program.

    Income Tested Care Fee

    If you have or are about to get a Home Care Package, and if you do not receive a full pension, you may need to make a contribution to the cost of your care. This is known as an income-tested care fee. The fee is different for everyone because it is based on your individual income. Please note, the money you receive from the government will reduce by the same value of the income tested fee you are assessed to pay.

    If you haven’t already, you will need to have an income assessment to determine whether or not you will be required to pay this fee. We recommend you do this as soon as you can as the process can take time.

    For more information visit myagedcare.gov.au/income-assessment-home-care-packages or call 1800 227 475.


    Care Management

    Care Management is an important component of your Home Care Package. It includes:

    • Reviewing your Home Care Agreement a written agreement between you and your provider detailing the services you will access;
    • The initial and ongoing assessment, planning and development of your Care Plan a plan we design together to ensure the services you choose help you achieve your goals;
    • Ensuring there is someone to speak to when you need to;
    • Ensuring your care is aligned with your culture and other supports;
    • Identifying and addressing risks to your safety;
    • The coordination of your budget, care and services to help you achieve your goals.

    Every Home Care Package will require some level of care management, ensuring you receive the appropriate level of support for your current and future care needs and goals.
