Aged Care Accommodation Pricing update
By Julie McStay23 Jan 2014
On Thursday, 23 January 2014 the Aged Care Pricing Commissioner released its Application Form and Application Guide for providers to make an application for approval of Refundable Accommodation Payments over $550,000. Click here to read release.
The Department of Social Services has not yet released their "best practice guidelines" for providers to use to set Refundable Accommodation Payments of less than $550,000. The Department has advised that these guidelines will be released after industry consultation is complete.
In late 2013 we deferred our series of aged care accommodation pricing seminars until these two sets of guidelines were released. We will publish the new dates for our seminars on setting and publishing accommodation prices and making application for approval to the Aged Care Pricing Commissioner as soon as possible.
