Improvements to Payment Arrangements for Home Care Packages

Published

At the 2019-20 Budget, the Australian Government announced new payment arrangements for home care. Under these arrangements, providers will be paid for the actual services delivered after they are delivered.

The Aged Care Financing Authority has consulted with providers on the financial impacts of the proposed changes. The department conducted separate consultations on non-financial impacts.

On 27 February 2020, changes to the Aged Care Act 1997 were introduced to Parliament to implement the first phase of the measure, payment in arrears, so it can commence on 1 June 2020.

More information will be provided once the phase 2 implementation model and timeframe are finalised.
