Aged Care Budget 2022-23

The Australian Government is now entering the second year of the 5-year aged care reform program, in response to the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

The Budget 2022-23 further invests $522 million in the aged care reforms. This grows the Government’s commitment to the reforms to $18.8 billion.

Key elements of the Budget 2022-23 are:

• $345.7 million to improve medication management in residential aged care facilities.
• $48.5 million for 15,000 additional aged care training places for new and existing personal care workers, to a total of 48,800 places.
• $20.1 million committed to the Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN ACC) Transition Fund to ensure no facility receives less funding in the first two years of the new funding model compared with their current funding.
• $5.4 million to continue consultation and development of a new regulatory framework for aged care.
• $6.1 million to continue the rollout of regionally focused Department of Health staff in Primary Health Network regions.
