    Understanding Your Residential Aged Care Costs

    Moving into your aged care home is a big decision, and it’s important to understand the costs associated with your care. Residential aged care fees are regulated by the Australian Government and may be subsidised based on your income and assets. 
    • Covers your daily living costs (e.g. meals, power, laundry, personal care) .
     
    • Paid by all aged care home residents.
     
    • Everyone can be asked to pay this fee.
     
    • Fee is calculated at 85% of the single person Age Pension. The Basic Daily Care Fee is set by the Government and equates to 85% of the single pension, 96.5% of the single pension for non-pensioners. 
     
    • Adjusted each March and September in line with changes to the Age Pension. These amounts vary from time to time as the level of the pension increases.
    The co-contribution is an amount which is assessed by Centrelink or the Department of Veterans Affairs (if the person is a veteran). It is the amount which the government agency determines as the amount which the resident can pay towards the cost of their care. These amounts are subject to Yearly and Lifetime caps which are set at the time of the resident’s entry to residential care and which are indexed in accordance with the CPI.
    Further information is available on www.humanservices.gov.au or www.myagedcare.gov.au
    The Accommodation Payment is set by the Board of Australian Nursing Home Foundation Limited and is varied from time to time. This payment is only applicable to those residents entering on or after 1 July 2014 who have been assessed by Centrelink or DVA. Chow Cho Poon charges Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RADs) and the corresponding Daily Accommodation Payments (DAPs) 
    up to a maximum of:
    Room Type
    RAD
    DAP
    Single with no en-suite
    $400,000
    $54.79
    Double with no en-suite
    $350,000
    $47.95
    Residents have the right to choose which option would best suit their financial arrangements. Those options are:
    • To pay the RAD wholly by lump sum payment; or
    • To pay the RAD as a daily payment (known as a DAP); or
    • To pay the RAD by a combination of lump sum and daily payment
     
    Within 28 days of entering the facility residents must advise the management of Chow Cho Poon Nursing Home which option they wish to choose. If this is not done, the management of Chow Cho Poon Nursing Home will implement the preferred option of the Board of Australian Nursing Home Foundation Limited. From the date of entry, and pending advice of the resident’s preferred option of payment, residents will be charged the Daily Accommodation Payment. Where the resident chooses to pay by lump sum (RAD), the DAP will be charged until the lump sum is paid.
     
    It is recommended that you seek advice from a financial planner to determine which payment option best suits your financial arrangements.
     
    The Accommodation Payment can also be paid by a combination of the lump sum (RAD) and daily payment (DAP). This is done by the resident electing to pay a percentage of the RAD as a lump sum and the remainder as a daily payment. The daily payment is calculated by applying the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR) to the unpaid lump sum amount. An example is as follows:
     
    Resident A enters into a single room and chooses to pay the RAD 50% as a lump sum and 50% as a daily payment. Resident A would therefore pay a lump sum of $200,000 and a daily payment (DAP) of $22.30.
    This daily payment is calculated as follows:
    Unpaid lump sum – $200,000
    Maximum Permissible Interest Rate – 4.07%
    DAP ($200,000 x 4.07%) divided by 365 days = $22.30
    Alternatively, Resident B enters into a single room and chooses to pay the RAD $50,000 as a lump sum and the remainder as a daily payment. Resident B would therefore pay a lump sum of $50,000 and a daily payment (DAP) of $39.03.
    This daily payment is calculated as follows:
    Unpaid lump sum – $350,000
    Maximum Permissible Interest Rate – 4.07%
    DAP ($350,000 x 4.07%) divided by 365 days – $39.03
     
    Prospective residents who do not have the means to pay an accommodation payment are always welcome at Chow Cho Poon Nursing Home.
