The Government of Australia has stripped funding for aged care body and the body has accused government for it. They want the funding to be normal as before so that they can work efficiently. The association for Aged Care on South Australia has funded $3.7 billion for the same but the South Australians believe that they would be neglected as the service providers like nursing homes will face reduced compensation that will affect the patients.
Mark butler, the federal aged care minister claimed that some of the people have been into high care at the time of unusual claiming patterns. He told this to the people of South Australia and Queensland especially.
The most important action for this reform is to scratch around $1.6 billion paid in past four years. This is done when the patient is moved into higher care from lesser-remunerated services. Mr. Butler also added, "This is money we would be able to redistribute across the sector evenly rather than to those who are trying to get more than they are entitled to".
Another person who took keen interest in this reform is the association Chief Executive, Paul Carberry, who told that many people or the providers were being harmed by the government. He was totally and deeply angry at the move and added that the crackdown has hurled the government. The real part of the story is the government had around 2,376 audits all by the Department of Health and Ageing in the present financial year. But only 36 out of the total, which is just 1.3 % of the total, had resulted in the key funding downgrades.
So the government is rethinking into the matter and trying to pass this reform only.
