Aged and Community Services Australia
AHA developed a tool for the Aged and Community Services Australia (ACSA) in 2007, which enabled aged care providers to estimate the financial impact of the Australian Government's recently announced changes to accommodation payments and charges in residential aged care. These changes, which have been implemented under the Securing the Future Package, provide increased payments for some classes of new residents but reduced payments for others.
This tool assists providers in estimating their future revenue under the changes and also to assist ACSA to demonstrate the impact of the package to Government. The tool enables facilities or services to input the number of residents in a number of asset categories and also to model the effect of various levels of client turnover.
