THE TEMPORARY SUBSIDY INCREASE – UPDATE TO ACFI RATES

The ACFI rates for the 2019 financial year have had an additional subsidy added as a result of the $320 million funding boost announced in February, coming into effect with the new rates released on the 20th March 2019.

From the 20th March 2019 to the 30th June 2019, Providers will receive an additional daily ACFI subsidy for the Temporary Subsidy Increase. This is in addition to the Quality Care Fund additional daily ACFI subsidy that came into effect from the 20th September 2018, and paid until the 30th June 2019. A temporary RCS subsidy boost will also be paid in addition to the daily RCS subsidy rates for the period 1st April 2019 to 30th June 2019.

We’ve listed below the new total rates of the daily ACFI subsidy and the daily RCS subsidy as a result of Temporary Subsidy Increase rates, and including the Quality Care Fund additional subsidy.
