Home Care Package Subsidy Payment Changes
Home Care Package subsidy will not be paid in advance any more. Providers need to do the following:
Ensure you are up-to-date with claiming. You will receive your last advance (for January 2021) by the end of December 2020.
Submit your December 2020 claim as normal. This will not be affected by the changes.
You will not receive an advance for February 2021.
Submit your January 2021 claim as normal. This claim will reconcile against the January 2021 advance you received in December 2020.
Submit your February 2021 claim as normal.
Services will be paid their full claim amount minus any held-over amounts or applicable adjustments.
