In response to the Treasurer's invitation to provide views regarding priorities for the 2015-16 Budget, CHA lodged a submission on 20 January 2015.
CHA's submission concerns the care of the increasing number of older Australians due to the ageing of our population. It calls for a clear statement that it is the Government's intention to transition to a contestable market-based aged care system so that providers, financiers and equity investors, who are making long term investments, and consumers have certainty about the Government's policy intentions. The submission also identifies the care of older people with severe behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia as an immediate priority.
