Productivity Commission Submission to the Review of Pricing Arrangements in Residential Aged Care
AbstractThe Commission’s submission to the Review of Pricing Arrangements for Residential Aged Care draws on earlier work, including its inquiry into Nursing Home Subsidies and a major conference on Policy Implications of the Ageing of Australia’s Population. The submission provides an assessment of the current funding and service delivery arrangements for aged care services; an analysis of the implications of ageing, trends in disability rates and other key influences on the future demand for and cost of these services; and an examination of the merits of a number of reform options, including broader changes to secure the aged care system’s effective performance in the longer term.
