Helping you understand Aged Care fees and charges

When first entering the world of Aged Care, it can be confusing to understand the different fees. Within Australia’s Aged Care system, there are four possible fees you may be required to pay:

  1. Basic Daily Fee
  2. Means Tested Fee
  3. Accommodation Fee
  4. Additional and/or Extra Services Fee

The Basic Daily Fee covers day-to-day living costs like meals, cleaning, laundry, heating and cooling.  The fee is set by the Department of Human Services at 85% of the single Age Pension.

The Means Tested Fee only applies to seniors who can afford it.

The Accommodation Fee covers the cost of your room, bathroom facilities and access to all communal areas. You have three options to pay the Accommodation Fee:

  • RAD (Refundable Accommodation Deposit) – fee paid as a lump sum; you have up to 6 months to pay. A DAP will apply until paid.
  • DAP (Daily Accommodation Payment) – fee paid as a daily payment, calculated using the Government-approved interest rate.
  • RAD & DAP combination payment – This provides you with the opportunity to combine the lump sum and daily payment options.

The Additional and/or Extra Services only applies to seniors who choose to access these services.
