The letter I received from My Aged Care mentions a Maximum Daily Fee. What is this fee, and do I have to pay for it?

As Of 1 July 2019, The Maximum Daily Fees Are:

  • Level 1 (Basic Needs) – $9.44
  • Level 2 (Low Care Needs) – $9.99
  • Level 3 (Intermediate Care Needs) – $10.27
  • Level 4 (High Care Needs) – $10.54

The Government Has Determined A Maximum Daily Fee That Providers May Ask For You To Contribute To Your Home Care Package. This Is Not Mandatory, And Many Providers Will Not Ask You For This Contribution. If You Do Contribute This Fee To Your Package, Your Package Will Be Higher, And You Will Receive Additional Services.
