Income Tested Amount

FOR PRE JULY 2014 RESIDENTS ONLY

This is an additional amount that a resident would need to pay for their “care” over & above the Basic Daily Care Fee (BDCF). It is an amount estimated by the Dept. of Social Services (based on information provided by Centrelink or DVA) about your income . Effectively it is an inverse tax, it is the Governments way of saying “you have more income & therefore you can pay more towards your Aged Care & hence you can pay more”, so that they can subsidise you less.
