Room Configuration and Pricing

Refundable Accommodation Deposits (RADs) range from $300k - $550k.

Please note that for residents with no or minimal assets and income (i.e. fully or partially Government supported residents), the only fee that will apply will be the Basic Daily Fee, which represents 85% of the aged care pension, subject to room type being available.

With the exception of Accommodation Fees/Deposits (which are negotiated with Signature Care directly), all other fees and charges are mandated by the Australian Government (i.e. Department of Health, Department of Veterans Affairs, etc).

Accommodation Fees / Deposits: Pricing Options (Only one will apply):

Option 1
Refundable Accommodation Deposit (“RAD”)

A RAD is a one-off lump sum payment to Signature Care. The full RAD amount is refunded upon departure of the home, less any amounts you have agreed to be deducted (if applicable) and is 100% guaranteed by the Australian Government.

Option 2
Daily Accommodation Payment (“DAP”)

A DAP is a daily payment of interest on the room price which is billed monthly (i.e. a rental-type payment).

Unlike the RAD, the DAP is not refundable upon departure of the home.

The DAP amount is based on the Maximum Permissible Interest Rate (MPIR), which is set by the Department of Health, and the agreed price of the room you select.

As at 1 April 2020, the MPIR is 4.89%.

To calculate the equivalent DAP, multiply the RAD by the MPIR and divide by 365 for the daily rate.

Option 3
Combination of RAD and DAP

The accommodation cost is paid by a combination of RAD and DAP where you choose a partial RAD amount and this will then adjust the amount you pay via the daily charge.

For a combination RAD/DAP payment, multiply the remainder of the RAD by the MPIR and divide by 365.

For example, the DAP on 50% of a $400,000 RAD is determined by: [(50% x $400,000) x MPIR]/365 = ($200,000 x 4.89%)/365 = $26.79 per day.

Option 4
Fully or Partially Government Supported Accommodation

Signature Care offer fully supported rooms where no accommodation contribution is required, or partially supported rooms, where only a very small accommodation contribution is required.

To check if you are eligible, please complete an Income and Assets Assessment Form from the Department of Human Services (www.humanservices.gov.au) and submit to Centrelink.
