Description:

The Improved Payment Administration Transitional Support For Home Care Providers program (the program) will assist the most vulnerable home care providers, deemed most at risk of experiencing serious viability issues because of the changes made by the Improved Payment Administration measure (the measure).

The measure aims to improve the administration arrangements of paying home care subsidy to approved home care providers and align the home care program with other Commonwealth Government funded programs.

The way the Commonwealth Government pays Home Care subsidies and supplements to providers will change. Instead of paying the full subsidy and supplements in advance each month, it will be paid in arrears for services delivered.
