Home Care Package Pricing

Care Connect Pricing Guide

The cost of your services and the cost of your provider are covered by your Home Care Package. Our costs have two key components:

  • Package Management — 13% fee
  • Care Management — 15% fee

Package Management

Your Package Management fee covers regulated activities that Care Connect is duty bound to fulfill and includes setting up, and management of, the funding subsidy through Medicare, government reporting, quality reviews, compliance auditing and preparation of an itemised monthly statement to help you keep track of your funding and services.

Care Management

Care Management is an essential component of every Home Care Package. It ensures you receive the appropriate level of support in a way that meets your current and future care needs. Care Management may be provided in different ways including face-to-face or via phone or email and you will have access to our dedicated Care Centre team. Care Management Includes:

• Dedicated Client Adviser

• Care Plan development and ongoing review

• Service scheduling and coordination

• Services tailored to your individual needs and cultural requirements

• Safety risk assessment and monitoring of your health and wellbeing progress

• Annual review of Home Care Agreement.

Reimbursements, purchases, vouchers, and using your own service provider will include a 10% handling fee. (Maximum handling fee of $100 for reimbursements and purchases over $1000.)
