Have you received a letter of assignment from My Aged Care?
1. What does the letter of assignment mean?
The letter of assignment advises you of the level of Home Care Package that’s been assigned to you. There are four levels of a Home Care Package – Level 1 is the lowest amount of funds and Level 4 is the highest.
The letter will contain a 10 digit unique referral code that you will need to supply to your chosen Home Care Provider.
If you’ve been assigned a Home Care Package below the level that you’ve been approved for, this is so that you can start receiving some interim care and services while you wait for a Home Care Package to become available at your approved level.

2. What to do next?
Contact your short-listed Home Care Provider with your referral code, so that they can arrange to meet with you to discuss your care and services. You have 56 days to find a Home Care Provider and enter into a Home Care Agreement from the date of your assignment letter.
3. Begin your services
Once you have a Home Care Agreement, a care plan and an individualised budget, your care and services can begin.
Your Home Care Package starts on the day your Home Care Agreement is signed. As part of the Aged Care Reforms you can move your package to a new provider at any stage.
