It is important to plan for the costs of aged care. Understanding what fees and/or charges may be involved with accessing the services you need, and whether financial support may be available to you from the government, will assist you in making informed choices.
How much you will need to contribute towards the cost of your aged care is determined by the Government and is dependent on your personal circumstances. Consideration is given to your income and assets, as well as what type of care services you require.
Our knowledgeable Client Services Managers can provide information on the fees, charges and government funding associated with aged care services; and we are happy to discuss specific costs related to the residence of your choice. More information on fees and funding is available here. Please note, we are not able to provide any specific financial advice related to your personal circumstances.
Should you wish to speak with a financial advisor, BlueCross suggests seeking the advice of an accredited financial planner who specialises in aged care services. We can provide a list of such financial planners upon request.
