9. How do I know if the Government Funded Home Care Package fees I’m being charged are fair?
Do you want your Current Approved Provider to keep 10%pa or 52.3%pa of the Government Funding & Consumer Contributions before they buy your care?
We’ve never had financial transparency in the Government subsidised in home care industry before. So we have never known how much the Government funding was, and of that, how much did the Approved Providers keep before providing Elder care. One Approved Provider said they could not provide care without keeping 60%pa.
Daughterly Care’s CEO, Kate Lambert has checked hundreds of Home Care Package statements over the last 2 years. Kate has discovered that the stated fees are often a lot more. The worst she has seen is 63% pa fees. Kate is in the process of checking Daughterly Care clients’ statements and advising them how they can get better value from their Government Funded Home Care Package.
The information on excessive fees will be published soon… sign-up if you would like to be notified when this information will be published online.
