Transition Care Program Agreement

The program must provide the necessary services to a recipient of a home care package and should not simply reload the existing care plan, since the person is placed on leave from the package. A complete list of TCP care and care services provided for TCP can be accessed in TCP information and customer agreement. The Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) determines the person`s initial right. As soon as they are satisfied, a member of the transition care team will meet with the individual to discuss the program in more detail. The Transitional Care Program (CTT) aims to minimize the number of seniors who are living unsuitable and prolonged hospital stays or who are admitted to home care prematurely. Instead, the focus is on the potential benefits of the program for a person with an age-related illness and their willingness to obtain such a temporary benefit. In addition, the Transition Care 2019 guidelines govern the provision and operation of the program. Please note that recipients of home care packages cannot be billed by their provider during the period during which they receive transitional care. The target group for transitional care services includes: recipients of Commonwealth-funded housing services can access PCTs if they are considered eligible for hospital by the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) and if the program is able to provide the necessary assistance. If the duration of the TCP absence is longer than 24 hours, participation in the program is interrupted and the person must be removed if he or she still needs assistance. The program begins with discharge from the hospital, is available nationally and is not related to geographic location. Close cooperation and agreement with TAC will ensure clarity of the TCP`s roles, expectations and objectives. People from countries that have mutual health agreements with Australia may be eligible for Medicare.

These include Belgium, Finland, Italy, Malta, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Republic of Ireland, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Flexible care centres used in the transitional care program are governed by the Aged Care Act of 1997 and the care principles made under the Act.
