Do My Needs meet the requirements?

  1. Home Care Package (HCP) To find out if you are eligible for a home care package or any other help at home services, call My Aged Care on 1800 200 422. The My Aged Care contact centre will ask you a series of questions to determine if you need an assessment by an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT).
  2. During the assessment the ACAT will determine if you are eligible for a home care package and which package level best meets your care needs. There are four levels:
    1. Level 1 – Basic care needs
    2. Level 2 – Low-level care needs
    3. Level 3 – Intermediate care needs
    4. Level 4 – High-Level care needs.
  3. You will be approved for one level of the home care package. You will be prioritised for care based on your assessed need.
  4. Each level of home care package provides a different subsidy amount. This amount is paid to your selected approved home care provider. The subsidy contributes to the total cost of your services and care delivery. It si expected that you will contribute to the cosy of your care where your personal circumstances allow.
