Effective 7 March 2022

The TAC is aware of the ongoing significant impact of COVID-19 on clients and on service providers, particularly in the substantial reduction in community access, therapy supports and other costs arising from the pandemic. To help ensure Attendant Care providers remain viable and retain their staff, the TAC is providing two financial support measures:

1. The 2022-23 2.53% indexation of TAC Attendant Care fees will take effect from Monday 7 March 2022 (brought forward from 1 July 2022)

2. A temporary 5% loading will be added post indexation to the Attendant Care fees, from Monday 7 March until 5 March 2023.
