Implementation of Increasing Choice in Home Care requires amendments to both primary and delegated aged care legislation. The Aged Care Legislation Amendment (Increasing Consumer Choice) Act 2016 (the Amendment Act) is now in place. Changes are also required to the delegated legislation (Aged Care Principles and Determinations).
The Department has released a consultation paper and an exposure draft of the proposed amendments (available at the Department’s Consultation Hub) to the delegated legislation for the February 2017 changes to home care. The consultation paper provides further detail and explanation of the proposed amendments to the delegated legislation and seeks feedback from aged care providers, consumers, carers and other interested parties on the implementation arrangements.
The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the issues outlined in the consultation paper. This will provide a further opportunity for interested parties to ask questions or seek clarification on the proposed amendments.
