Home Care Packages
Home Care Packages (HCP) are one of the ways that older Australians can access affordable care services to get some help at home. They are designed for those with more complex care needs that go beyond what the Commonwealth Home Support Programme can provide.
Home Care Packages can be an option if you need a coordinated approach to the delivery of your help at home - perhaps because you need help with many everyday tasks, or the care you need is more complex or intensive.
Call us on 1800 888 541 to speak to our staff about any healthcare products that can support you to maintain your independence and achieve your goals.
Funding refers to home enteral nutrition administered in the home environment by the patient or carer without a health care provider present.
Public health services will be funded to actual reported activity levels. The level of activity undertaken in the previous year will be used to estimate the activity level to cashflow funding through the year. Any recall/throughput adjustment is applied at the full rate at the end of each financial year for health services whose activity is below or over target.
