RAD Negotiation

Are you concerned about the excessive cost of residential aged care for your loved one?

RAD Negotiation

"For many older Australians, the price they pay to enter care is based on how much money they have in their pockets, rather than a reflection of the true cost of care, and value for money,"

Mr Mark Butler - Minister of Ageing - April 2012

When your elderly relative has been placed into an aged care home prior to financial arrangements being agreed or finalised with the aged care provider, the family can choose to employ our RAD negotiation specialist to negotiate the RAD or additional service fees with the aged care provider.

Our RAD Negotiation service has been designed for families who have already selected the aged care home but have not yet agreed on the relevant accommodation fees or extra service fees with the aged care provider.

Many families are unaware that you are not obliged to discuss with the aged care provider the result (of the asset assessment) when negotiating a RAD unless you choose to.

Many families do not wish to directly negotiate fees with aged care providers when the subject of those fees involves a loved one.

By employing our RAD specialist, family clients remove themselves from this activity but also obtain a better financial result.

An experienced RAD specialist can work with you and can describe various strategies that have been found useful when discussing fees with the aged care provider.

The benefit of our RAD negotiation service is that it assists the family to reduce the cost of residential aged care.
