Means-tested care fee
Fulltime aged care residents may also be required to pay an additional contribution based on an assessment of their income and assets. There are annual and lifetime caps for this contribution and any income-tested fees you may have previously paid towards home care count towards this cap.
Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD)
Each aged care room in Australia has its own RAD price. Your RAD is a lump-sum accommodation payment, which is fully refundable when you leave. You have the option to pay the RAD either in full or a smaller deposit amount combined with a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP). The more you are able to pay up front, the less your DAP will be.
Any amount paid as a RAD is government guaranteed to the resident as per the Resident Agreement.
