The cost of aged care services depends on your situation, including the type of services you need and your financial situation.

The maximum basic fee is 17.5% of the single person rate of the basic Age Pension. This works out to be $142.38 per person, per fortnight (from 20 September 2017).

Depending on your income, you may be asked by your service provider to pay an income-tested care fee. This is in addition to a basic fee.
