If you are self-funded retiree or on a part pension you may be required to pay what is called the ‘Income Tested Fee’.
The ‘Income Tested Fee’ is based on an assessment of your financial situation and can mean you will have to contribute to your package.
If the government assesses you as having to contribute to your Home Care Package, then you must pay the ‘Income Tested Fee’. No Provider is able to waive this fee.
If you have any further questions about the ‘Income Tested Fee’ or whether you would be required to pay it, give one of our Care Experts a call today on 1300 497 442.
