- Being Assigned a Home Care Package
Once you have been assessed and approved for a home care package you are put on a national waiting list. When a home care package becomes available, you will get a letter from My Aged Care to let you know you have been assigned a package.
The letter will tell you which level of home care package has been assigned to you and will include a unique referral code that you give to your chosen provider.
You may be assigned a home care package below the level you have been approved for. This is so you can access care and services while you wait for a package at your approved level to become available.
You should take a copy of your letter with your referral code, (text box containing numbers written in red) along with the results from your income assessment from the Department of Human Services, to meetings with your preferred provider to start planning and negotiating your services.
You have 56 days to find a service provider and enter into a Home Care Package from the date of your letter.
If you have difficulty finding an approved home care provider and have not entered into a Home Care Agreement within the 56 days, or need more time to make a decision, you can call My Aged Care and they can extend the time by a further 28 days.
