How does the fee collection work for Home Care Packages? 4.5

Fee Collection for Home Care Packages

Your home care provider determines how they collect fees.  Fees are generally paid fortnightly or monthly. A provider can’t charge more than one month in advance.  

You can start a Home Care Package n before your income assessment is complete. If you are already getting an income support payment the Department of Health Services will already have enough information to determine your income tested care fee.

You can start a Home Care Package before your income assessment is complete.  If you are already getting an income support payment the Department of Health Services will already have enough information to determine your income tested care fee. 

If you aren’t already getting an income support payment the government will meet your care costs while information is being gathered.  You will always need to pay the basic daily fee.
