Further information

The Australian Government is committed to capping administration and management charges in the Home Care Packages (HCP) Program. These changes will commence on 1 January 2023.

Care and package management charges will be capped at 20% and 15% of the package level respectively. Exit fees and separate subcontracting charges will also be eliminated.

Aged care funding should be spent on the care of older Australians, and these changes will make pricing fairer, so there are no surprises on the bill and more dollars for care.

We are hosting a webinar for HCP providers to give an overview of the upcoming changes, what they will mean for you and your care recipients, and how you can get ready.

You will have an opportunity to submit questions during the webinar.

If you are unable to attend the webinar, you will be able access the recording on the department’s website.

Learn more about these changes and how providers can prepare, on the Home Care Packages webpage.
