When is an Aged Care Assessment Team (ACAT) required?

If a person is seeking access to aged care services that are funded under the Aged Care Act (1997), an ACAT is required. Such services as Residential Care, Flexible Care in the form of Transition Care, Residential Respite Care or a Home Care Package.

A subsidy cannot be paid to an approved provider for providing care to a person, unless the person is approved under the Act as a care recipient.
