Home Care Packages Explained… 3 STEPS TO SETTING UP A
GOVERNMENT FUNDED PACKAGE

In 2017 the government launched a new model of aged care: consumer choice.

You are able to direct your government funding to the provider of your choice, spending as you choose, on services you want.


Step 1
Seniors who want to stay at home can access a range of support services and clinical care. You can contact My Aged Care on 1800 200 422 or go online to www.myagedcare.gov.au to book an ACAT assessment or alternatively talk to your doctor about arranging an assessment.


Step 2
My Aged Care will send you a letter to tell you that you have been assigned a home care package. You will have 56 days to enter into an agreement with a provider.


Step 3
Contact our client manager and discuss how we can assist you with the services you would like to receive from your package.


Time Tip
Complete your income tested fee assessment when you book your ACAT.
