Forms must be completed and signed by key personnel within your organisation. Key personnel are the nominated persons who are registered with the Department of Health and Ageing.
The Aged Care approved provider statement is signed by key personnel of an approved provider to advise that appropriate business and security controls are in place. It ensures all aged care forms, claims and other relevant documentation to claim payments of subsidy under the Aged Care Act 1997 are appropriately authorised.
The provider statement only needs to be completed if you are a provider with services not registered for Aged Care Online Claiming.
The provider statement must be submitted every three years. The current provider statement is valid for the period 1 July 2011 to 30 June 2014. The next statement is due 30 June 2014 and will be sent to providers with services not registered for Aged Care Online Claiming in April 2014.
For providers with services registered for Aged Care Online Claiming, the Aged Care Online Claiming terms and conditions have been amended to include the provider statement’s terms and conditions. You do not need to re-sign a new Registration for Aged Care Online Claiming as the terms and conditions in your original application remains valid.
Note: If your organisation operates more than one aged care service you can complete one statement, attaching a list of services. Each page must be signed by the key personnel.
The banking details form is for approved providers to formally notify the Department of Human Services of the banking details for:
- Australian Government-funded residential aged care services
- Community Aged Care Package (CACP) services
- Extended Aged Care at Home (EACH) services, and
- Transition care services
This form can be used to either add banking details for a new service or change the details for an existing service.
The form should be completed and signed by the approved provider (for a sole provider) or two key personnel (for a service administered by a board on behalf of the approved provider).
Note: Authorised signatories can only sign this form if they are key personnel.
When you have completed the form, make a copy for your records and send the original to the Department of Human Services.
Approval for higher-level funding for oxygen treatment is generally for a six-month period. This is because costs often fluctuate considerably for most residents' individual oxygen needs. Residential aged care services must advise the Department of Human Services of any changes that result in a variation of the amount being claimed and also any changes affecting payment of the benefit to the service.
This form is for residents in Australian Government-funded residential aged care services who wish to authorise another person to deal with the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) on their behalf. This form is also to be used for residents who are mentally impaired and are therefore unable to administer their own affairs.
If a resident is in a residential aged care service, they can authorise another person (a 'nominee') to act of their behalf with DoHA. The nominee may receive information from DoHA about their care costs and may give DoHA information about their income and assets. If it’s decided not to appoint a nominee, DoHA will contact the resident directly about these matters. You may vary or cancel the appointment of a nominee at any time by writing to DoHA
