National Partnership Agreement On Transitioning Responsibilities For Aged Care

A key feature of the agreement is the commitment of both governments to ensure that the service system remains stable for at least three years from July 1, 2016. The agreement also reflects the commitment of both governments to maintain the benefits of the Victorian HACC system. In response to the substantial change in the reform of aged care, the transition of disability and elder care services, and the implementation of the NDIS, the Commonwealth Department of Health and the Victorian Department of Health and Health Services have defined the change development and management framework for the period from July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2019. The framework will provide a stable state-wide service delivery platform and will develop restorative and restorative practice, welfare promotion and accessibility of services for people with different characteristics. The management of education and training services will also be part of this framework. On September 16, 2015, the Commonwealth and Victoria governments signed the Transitional Responsibility for Aged and Disability Care Services in Victoria (the HACC Transition Agreement).
