Are you eligible?
CHSP services are right for you if you are:
The Australian Government subsidises CHSP. In addition, you will be asked to contribute towards the cost of your care. The amount of your contribution is determined by your financial status and is modest.
The first step is to talk to us so we can review your needs, eligibility and general financial situation. Then you will have all the information you need for you and your family to make the best choices. When you are ready, we will help you choose which services you need, at the times that suit you.
All services subject to consumer eligibility for Commonwealth-subsidised services and current availability of funding.
Please contact our friendly team at Home Nursing Group to discuss your interest in CHSP services. We will be pleased to provide further details and information. Call us for a chat on 1300 698 693 or email us.
