How the Aged care entry requirements for providers works.
Since 1 July 2014, annual and lifetime caps apply to the income-tested care fee in home care packages, and means-tested care fee for residential care.
We pay the accommodation supplement to aged care providers to help with accommodation costs for some aged care recipients.
The annual and lifetime caps follow a care recipient as they move between providers, services and care types.
