HC improved payment


From 1 September 2021, legislation requires that Home Care Package providers receive funding based on the actual services delivered to care recipients. This change moves the responsibility for holding care recipients’ Government paid portion of unspent funds from the provider to the Government. Over time, this will reduce the prudential risk for home care providers and improve protections for care recipients’ home care funds as the program grows.

Transition to these improved payment arrangements (IPA) arrangements are not without both operational and financial risks. Challenges facing providers, software vendors, care recipients and Government will be explored during this thought leadership webinar.

Come and join LASA, along with a panel of industry experts, as we look to review the status of IPA implementation based on transition requirements, LASA’s IPA advocacy activities and provider considerations in navigating the IPA transition. Please note, this thought leadership webinar is not simply reiterating information already provided by Government and answering questions regarding operational process. Instead, it will explore some of the broader considerations for change preparation and anticipating change deficits, providing participants with an invaluable reflective learning opportunity.

Key Learning outcomes:

  • A timely update on LASA’s advocacy concerning the IPA transition timeframes with regard to both sector and Government capability for a seamless transition.
  • Consider the logistical demands for sector transition to IPA by 1 September 2021 from an industry perspective.
  • Outline IPA risks and mitigants as a reference for home care provider and software vendor consideration in progressing operational transition plans.
  • Provide a forum for LASA to receive feedback from webinar participants based on industry perspectives to IPA implementation.
