If you are a self-funded retiree or on a part age pension you may be required to make a small contribution towards your Home Care Package, what is called the ‘Income Tested Fee’. The ‘Income Tested Fee’ is based on an assessment of your individual income and can mean you will have to make an extra contribution to your package.
If you are assessed 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.
No, providers charge different fees based on their pricing structure. While Let’s Get Care only charges a fixed and transparent combined fee for each management model, some other providers may charge additional costs like the Basic Daily Fee or travel costs. It’s important to inquire about all possible fees and compare them across providers to ensure you are getting the maximum amount of government subsidy for your Home Care Package.
If you’re applying for a government-subsidised Home Care Package, an Income Assessment is generally required to determine if you need to pay an Income Tested Fee. The assessment is conducted by the Services Australia. If your income falls below a certain income threshold, you may not need to pay the Income Tested Fee. It’s essential to complete this assessment to ensure you’re paying the correct fees for your Home Care Package.
