When to get reassessed
If you’ve had a face-to-face assessment in the past, there may come a time when you need to be reassessed.
The assessment you had would have been based on the needs that you had at that time. However, circumstances can change.
You may find that since your last assessment, your needs have changed. Perhaps some other daily tasks have become more difficult for you.
Choose the situation that fits you best, and take the appropriate steps:
You already receive subsidised aged care services
If you are receiving subsidised care but find that your needs have changed:
Speak to your current provider to review your care plan
They will review your care plan and see if there’s something more they can do to support you.
Your service provider will contact your My Aged Care assessor
Your assessor may amend your support plan to meet your changing needs or they may determine that a reassessment is required.

You had an assessment in the past, and weren’t eligible
Even if you weren’t found to be eligible in the past, your needs may have changed since your last assessment. You can ask for a reassessment at any time.
