Home & Community Services funding and costs:
You can either pay for your in-home care services privately or you may be eligible for government funding. Here’s what you need to know about each:
You may be eligible for government funded in-home aged care. There is a range of different programs and funding levels available, and your eligibility will be assessed to determine what you qualify for.
Paying for your in-home aged care privately is simple, you just pay an hourly rate for the care services you want and need. You can also use private funding in addition to government funding if you want some extra support.
Fees and payments
The Australian Government determines the fees for Home and Community Services Packages and Veterans Home Care.
If you are a full or partially self-funded retiree you may be assessed to pay an additional daily income tested fee for a Home and Community Services Package.
It is important to realise that no one is refused care because of an inability to pay. If you need further assistance to navigate the system please give us a call.
