No provision for automatic processing of retrospective payments


Income data is transmitted to DH&FS daily to enable that Department to determine the daily fees payable by aged care residents.

The data transmitted is extracted from the pensioner's current assessment at the time the file is run daily.

There is currently no facility to transmit retrospective income adjustments to DH&FS to enable them to calculate arrears or overpayments of fees.

The capacity to provide historical data to DH&FS will be available from 1 July 1999 as part of the date of effect initiative.
