The Minister for Aged Care, Ken Wyatt AM, has appointed John Dicer as the new Aged Care Pricing Commissioner.
The office of the Aged Care Pricing Commissioner was established in 2013 to help ensure that people requiring aged care places are not over charged.
“Older Australians need to be sure that when they need residential aged care support they are paying a fair price,” Minister Wyatt said.
“I’m pleased to appoint John Dicer as Australia’s new Aged Care Pricing Commissioner.
“John brings with him broad public and private sector experience including a strong background in regulatory matters, compliance, risk management and complex pricing issues.”
