Aged Care Reforms – Giving Consumers Choice

The first stage of the Increasing Choice in Home Care measure was implemented on 27 February 2017.

From 27 February 2017, all home care packages have been provided to individual consumers rather than the previous method where home care packages were awarded to approved providers under an allocation process.

This change now gives consumers the ability to choose their provider and to direct the Government subsidy to that provider. This means that consumers can change their provider if they wish, including if they move to another area to live.

What does this mean for you?

It means that the Harmony team can manage the care services for you if you have been allocated a home care package following an ACAT (Aged Care Assessment Team) assessment, or if you have already been allocated a home care package in either level 1, 2, 3 or 4, you can change providers and have our team take care of any of your home care needs.

For any further information, or to book an obligation free consultation to see how we can assist you with your Home Care Package needs, call 1300 25 15 15 or email
