Nursing home subsidies

Public inquiry

This public inquiry has concluded. The inquiry report was released by the Commonwealth Government on 31 March 1999.

The Commission was asked to report on current and alternative funding methodologies for nursing home subsidy rates. As part of the inquiry, the Commission examined whether the announced process of 'coalescence', under which the different nursing home subsidy rates in States and Territories would gradually move to national rates over a period of seven years, should proceed or be replaced by an alternative structure.
