Improving the Viability Supplement
From 1 January 2017, Viability Supplement eligibility is determined by the Modified Monash Model (MMM).
The MMM uses more up to date Census data for classifying providers in regional, rural and remote areas. It will improve funding for aged care services in these areas.
This replaces the Rural, Remote and Metropolitan Areas (RRMA) classification and Accessibility/Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA).
Grandfathering arrangements apply so there’s no financial disadvantage to services or care recipients.
There are no changes to the claiming process. If you’re a Home Care provider, you just need to tell us your care recipients’ location details when they enter care or change location.
