Getting ready for Increased Consumer Control

A session at Getting ready for Increased Consumer Control

Wednesday 25th November, 2015

8:30am to 5:30pm (EST)

Increasing choice for older Australians receiving care at home

As a consequence of announcements in the 2015 Federal Budget, the forthcoming Aged Care Approvals Round for home care packages will be the last.

The ACAR will be abolished after that with packages to be allocated directly to consumers rather than providers from February 2017, paving the way for a significant shake-up of the home care sector.

This change will give the consumer the right to assign and take away a package from a provider as they require.

The Government has also indicated that after 1 July 2018 the Commonwealth Home Support Programme and Home Care Packages will be merged. Minister Fifield has also asked his Aged Care Sector Committee to prepare a roadmap for further change in the same direction as these two initiatives.
