Frequently Asked Questions

What will I have to pay if I accept a home care package from Accent Home Care?

The Australian Government states there are two main fees which include the Basic Daily Fee and Income Tested Fee. The good news is that Accent Home Care Does not charge the Basic Daily Fee. 

If the Australian Government has determined you need to pay an Income Tested Fee, we will discuss with you further what options you have.

Where can I get an estimate of my income-tested care fee?

We would encourage you to visit the My Aged Care website and use their fee estimator calculator tool for indicative costs that you may have to contribute towards your home care package.
