Everyone entering an aged care home should have their means assessed to see if they are eligible for Australian Government assistance with their care fees and accommodation costs. Depending on the outcome of your means assessment, you may be required to pay the following fees:
Basic Daily Fee
Everyone pays this fee. The maximum fee is set at 85% of the single basic age pension. This fee increases twice a year in line with the age pension.
Means-Tested Care Fee
Depending on your means assessment, you may be required to a means-tested care fee. This fee is different for everyone. The amount you pay depends on your income and assets and your cost of care. Annual and lifetime caps apply for this fee. More information available at myagedcare.gov.au.

There are three payment methods: a Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD), a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP) or a combination of both. A combination payment is any percentage of both a partial RAD and partial DAP.
