If you are eligible for Commonwealth Home Support Programme services, you don’t need to complete a means assessment. Services will start only after you have spoken with and agreed to the fees with your provider.
As the Australian Government funds providers to keep costs affordable, you won’t be asked to cover the full cost of services.
You will make a contribution to your provider—if you can afford it—for as long as you receive services.
There are no exit fees.
If you can’t afford to contribute towards your care, you won’t miss out on the help you need. You can talk to your provider about it.
