We review aged care fees under the aged care means test every 3 months.
This means we:
- look at changes to your care needs or financial position
- set your fees for the next 3 months
- work out if you should get any refunds
Your new fees start each year on:
- 1 January
- 20 March
- 1 July
- 20 September
Asking us to review your aged care fees
You can ask us to review your aged care fees if you have a change of circumstances. This could be a change of income or in the value of your assets.
When we’ve done the review we send letters to:
- you and your nominee to let you know if your fees will change
- your aged care provider
If the fee changes, we’ll start your new rate from the date of the review.
