COVID-19 supplement for home care packages

On 20 March 2020 the Prime Minister announced temporary increases in additional funding for home care providers due to the impacts from COVID-19.

The extra funding is equivalent to 1.2% of the daily subsidy rate and will apply to each home care package for the period from 1 March 2020 to 31 August 2020.

ECHO will send a letter to each client with a home care package to explain what this will mean to him or her.

Details of the subsidies and supplements can be found on the Australian Department of Health website, here: https://www.health.gov.au/resources/publications/schedule-of-subsidies-and-supplements-for-aged-care
