Changes to your fees or circumstances
We regularly review your aged care fees or you can ask us to review them. You need to tell us when your circumstances change.
How we review your fees
We review your aged care fees every 3 months.
This means we do all of these:
- look at changes to your care needs or financial position
- set your fees for the next 3 months
- work out if you should get any refunds.
When we’ve done the review, we write to you to tell you:
- if your fees will change
- what they will be.
We also write to your aged care provider.
