Aged Care Cost & Payment Options

There are a few different fees you may be required to pay when entering Residential Aged Care. You can use our Service Finder to find a home near you and the accommodation cost for that home.

There are a number of ways that you can choose to pay the Accommodation Cost. You can pay by a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) payment only, by ongoing Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) payments only, or by a combination of RAD payment and ongoing DAP payments.

Our helpful cost calculator helps you to better understand your payment options by calculating your DAP based on how much you contribute towards the RAD. You can choose the % amounts of your RAD and DAP payments.

In addition to the Accommodation Cost, there’s a Basic Daily fee that covers the cost of providing your care and the Government may require you to pay a Means-Tested Care Fee. For more information, speak with our Customer Service Team on 1800 632 314.
