WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU MAKE INFORMED CHOICES AND SUPPORT YOUR AGED CARE JOURNEY
1. What is a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD)?
A lump sum payment for the accommodation of the suite. A RAD is fully refunded when you leave the home. Repayment of the RAD is guaranteed by the Federal Government.
2. What is the Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP)?
The amount charged per day for the suite when a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) has not been paid.
The DAP is calculated as the equivalent of the RAD charged at an annual interest rate (MPIR) determined by the Government, divided by the number of days in the year. These payments are not refundable when you leave the home.
3. What is a combination payment?
You may choose to pay for your accommodation by part lump sum (RAD) and part daily payment (DAP).
*Illustrative rate based on MPIR of 4.02% as from the 1st of Jan 2021 and subject to change every 3 months.
**Everyone in residential aged care accommodation can be asked to pay a basic daily care fee. This is calculated daily and indexed with the age pension.
The BDCF (at the moment $52.25/day) is amended on March 20th and Sept 20th every year.
