Transition to My Aged Care
Aged Care Assessment Teams (ACATs) will start using My Aged Care to conduct comprehensive assessments and referrals from February 2016.
The transition dates:
Queensland: 1 February 2016

With the ACAT transition, all referrals for residential care, transition care and home care package providers will come via My Aged Care. Providers will see: electronic referrals from My Aged Care – accessible through the provider portal; some clients directly approaching providers with a My Aged Care referral code – which allows access to the client’s record through the provider portal.
