What does it cost?

Eligibility for a Home Care Package is determined by the Aged Care Assessment Service. This assessment is free and conducted in your home by experienced professionals.

If your circumstances allow, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of your care. Home care packages are income tested by the government.

If you are assessed as eligible for a home care package you can use the fee estimator to help calculate your costs in My Aged Care www.myagedcare.gov.au.

You may need to have an income assessment and should arrange this as soon as possible as this process takes time. Your income assessment will let you know if you need to pay an income-tested care fee.

You may be asked to pay:

  1. basic daily fee (which everyone can be asked to pay)
  2. an income-tested care fee (worked out by the Department of Human Services)
  3. fees for additional care or services not covered by your home care package

You can discuss and agree to any fees with us before you receive services.

Hepburn Health is able to provide a range of services which you can purchase from your package. The current costs are available here
