If you have incontinence, you may be eligible for financial assistance. The (CAPS) is an Australian Government Scheme, fund by Medicare, that financially assists eligible people - with a permanent or severe incontinence condition - to meet some of their costs of continence products. CAPS can help ease the financial pressure of having to buy all your incontinence products.
When you rely on incontinence products, it can become a financial burden on sufferers. The Australian Government is providing financial assistance for eligible people suffering from incontinence. The Continence Aids Payment Scheme (CAPS) is an Australian Government funding scheme by Medicare, that provides payments to help consumers cover some of the costs to manage their incontinence.
CAPS consists of a direct payment from Medicare to the customer. The payment is made directly as a lump sum or fixed amount into the customer’s bank account. CAPS offers you the choice and flexibility for the payments: either directly to you or to a family member or carer.
Applicants should fill in the CAPS application form. A health professional is required to complete the section 3 - health report of the form.
