  • Providing quality organisational management and leadership;

  • Operating with a professional and responsive approach underpinned by continuous improvement and innovation;

Host Provider Model

Care Goondiwindi will offer individuals and/or their family/carer a selection of 3 options under the host provider model. Each option is developed so that individuals can consider how they would like their packages delivered to assist them in enhancing their quality of life and achieve their desired outcomes.

Fee Structure

Care Goondiwindi Association Inc will offer 3 options to select from for the individual client and/or their family/carer. Each option will be reviewed quarterly (or sooner, depending on the situation) to allow for changes to be recorded and negotiated as required.

Option 1

Option one is a package fully administered on behalf of the individual and/or their family/carer. This model will have a 15% Administration fee allocated to Service Provider for administration for each quarter; this will be an upfront payment. The Package is then determined by the personalised choices made by the individual. This Option will have all Departmental reporting and administration requirements completed as well as monthly or quarterly reports handed to the individual and their family/carer for progress of payments, including an itemized account showing all expenditure made to date. At the end of each quarter they will be given the opportunity to review their current Package and adjust/change/update to meet current needs and goals.

Option 2

Option two is a partially run package in partnership with Client and Service Provider. This model will have a 10% Administration fee allocated to Service Provider for administration for each quarter; this will be an upfront payment. This Option will involve a fortnightly account that will need to be paid within 7 days to Service Provider for Administration fees. The client will also be provided with an itemised account of the personalized choices/expenditures made by the individual during that time period. This is provided to ensure the individual has the correct paperwork to lodge Departmental administration and reporting requirements. Or, as part of this Option, 10% Administration fee can be paid directly to Care Goondiwindi to complete and submit all Departmental reporting on the clients behalf for these fees.

Option 3

Option three is a Fee for Service package in which Care Goondiwindi can provide qualified Support Workers at an hourly fee rate of between $45 – $60 per hour (There is a minimum of 2 hours requirement as per SCHCaDS Award).This option also includes payment to sub-contractors as indicated in individual plans. A fortnightly account for services provided Care Goondiwindi will need to be paid within 7 days, in addition to a $100 administration fee charged to develop and submit plans to Disability Services as required.

Other rates include:

  • Transport: $0.80 per klms
  • Activity Costing: Cost varies depending on the type of activity chosen by the individual in their personalized package.
