Payments when going on holiday or in to hospital
If you are privately paying your admission agreement should cover these circumstances and the costs should be identified there. It may allow for a lesser payment over this time.
If you are a subsidised resident the two circumstances are treated differently.
• If you are in hospital you can be absent for 21 days per financial year (1 July - 30 June). During this time the subsidy will continue to be paid. This period may be extended following a recommendation by NASC.
• If you are on holiday you can take up to two weeks at a time up to a maximum of 28 days per financial year (1 July - 30 June). During this time the subsidy will continue to be paid.
