Regis Aged Care launches online payment calculator

With changes to the way Australian's pay for aged care coming into effect as of tomorrow (1 July 2014), South Australian aged care provider, Regis Aged Care has taken the step of introducing an online payment calculator to its website.

The payment calculator is designed to assist those looking to enter care to better understand their payment options for the cost of their accommodation.

Users simply have to place the advertised price of a room into the calculator and then use the slider option to see payment options for varying degrees of a lump sum Refundable Accommodation Deposit (RAD) combined with a Daily Accommodation Payment (DAP).

The payment calculator is for accommodation payment options only and users should be aware other fees and charges still apply. A full list of fees and charges can also be found on the 'Cost' page of the Regis website.

“Whilst the payment calculator is an indicator only we hope this calculator goes a long way to assisting families to understand the new payment options for aged care in a simple and easy to use format," Ross Johnston, Regis Aged Care chief executive said.

“We strongly encourage those looking at aged care to visit their preferred facility and get a detailed quote based on your specific circumstances, this will take into account all fees and charges, so you can make an informed decision,” he added.

Users are encouraged to call Regis Advice Customer Solutions Team on 1300 998 100 for any queries to do with the payment calculator.
