Aged Care Reforms – What it means for you!
- There is now no high care or low care distinction upon admission; all beds are general aged care beds. This removes some of the differences in funding between the two types of care.
- The main Government funding relates to the ACFI funding system that is based on your care needs and this is unchanged.
- All aged care facilities now have to price each type of resident room (similar to a hotel) and these prices are now published on our website and on the Government’s MyAgedCare website.
- Residents pay a daily care fee (the same for all), a capital or periodic payment and a means tested fee (based on your income and assets). The principles are the same as before, but have been simplified into one system for all.
