Submission to the Aged Care Pricing Framework Consultation Paper

Fair and sustainable pricing enables the aged care sector to deliver high quality care. In this submission to the Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority, we focus on the need for the pricing structure to reflect the cost of providing the care that Australians expect for themselves and their family members. This means ensuring that pricing keeps up with rising costs over time and recognising the costs of delivering care in regional and rural areas. Anglicare Australia also calls for a Pricing Framework that supports holistic, person-centred care, enabling a person to live a fulfilling and meaningful life.
