About our new site and RAD form

Publication type:
Fact Sheet
Resource publication:

The new website has improved functionality including easier navigation and a new calculator that will help providers each year with the indexation of an approved RAD price.

The new RAD application form has a new data sheet and providers will notice benefits including:

  • requests for essential information only
  • instructions and guidance to help complete the form
  • the ability to provide a rationale for the proposed RAD price, noting supporting market factors and a business case
  • areas to provide a list of facility features that provide value to residents at the aged care home.

The new form and data sheet should reduce the number of requests from us for more information from providers. We can help providers with the initial setup of the data sheet if required. Once completed, the applicant can use the same spreadsheet for their own records and can update it for future applications.

Already started an application?

We will continue to accept applications prepared on the old forms until 31 December 2020. From 1 January 2021, providers will need to use the new form and data sheet.
