Fees and Accommodation Payments -from July 2014
Moving into an aged care home may require payments or refundable deposits, as well as ongoing fees for your care, accommodation and daily living expenses. How much you pay depends on your financial situation. However, there are strong protections in place to make sure that care is affordable for everyone.
At Columbia Aged Care, we welcome all prospective residents no matter your financial situation.
The government sets the basic daily fee which contributes towards the cost of supplying services such as meals, laundry, linen and electricity. You may also pay an income support payment, if you have income above the capped pensioner income amounts. This is determined through the Department of Social Services through an income and asset test. This co-payment will be known as a means tested care fee and will contribute towards the costs of nursing and personal care services.
Accommodation payments are determined based on a persons level of asset and income. An assessment may be carried out through the Department of Social Services to determine whether a person is exempt from paying such a payment. It is essential that this assessment is carried out prior to entering residential care to ensure your accommodation payment is calculated based on your personal financial situation.
