Is there a supplement in Home Care for Viability? 2.7

Viability Supplement

The viability supplement is payable to providers in rural and remote areas in recognition of higher costs of doing business.


Eligibility for the viability supplement in home care is based on the suburb and postcode of the location where the care recipient receives care and services.


The approved provider must enter the location details for the care recipient through the Department of Human Services Aged Care Online Claiming webpage or here.

The viability supplement is then paid automatically on behalf of eligible home care recipients.
