Changes to the ‘means not disclosed’ process

New care recipients are able to complete the income test form or means test form to help determine their aged care fees and accommodation costs before, or at the time, they enter care.

If care recipients don’t complete their income and/or assets information, they are classed as ‘means not disclosed’ and will be asked to pay the maximum income‑tested care fee (home care package) or maximum means-tested care fee and their agreed accommodation price (residential care).
