Fees & Charges After 01 July 2014

Future Aged care costs explained

Your costs may vary according to:

  • your date of entry into an aged care home
  • your income and assets at that point
  • whether or not you are a pensioner

But don't worry, there are strong protections in place to ensure that care is affordable for everyone. The Australian Government calculates and regulates maximum daily fees. It also enforces limits as to how much you can be asked to pay as an accommodation bond or accommodation payments. 

What types of costs will there be?

Aged care homes may ask you to pay two main types of costs:
  • daily fees (calculated according to your income)
  • accommodation payments (calculated according to your assets).

Daily fees

Daily fees help cover your day-to-day living costs, such as meals, linen, laundry, and heating and cooling and care costs such as nursing and personal care. Daily fees have two parts:

Whether or not you will need to pay an income-tested fee – and how much you will be asked to pay – will be determined through an income assessment.

Accommodation payments (After 01 July 2014)

If your assets are more than a certain amount set by the Australian Government, you might also be asked to make an accommodation payment. This payment will go towards your aged care home accommodation. Before you sign your Resident Agreement, your aged care home will speak with you to agree to the amount. The payment will be either:

  • A Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD), or
  • A Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP), or
  • A combination of the two

If you are seeking government assistance with aged care accommodation costs, you must undergo an assets assessment by the Department of Human Services or the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

If your assets are less than the cut-off level, you won't need to make an accommodation payment. Cut off levels are determined by the Department of Hyman Services
