Subsidy Details
When you are referred for home-based healthcare and support, you’ll also be assessed for public assistance from one of the following sources:

- Aged care services are managed and funded in New Zealand by DHBs on behalf of the Ministry of Health.
- Disability Support Services (DSS), part of the Ministry of Health, is responsible for the planning and funding of disability support services in New Zealand.
- Community nursing services (also called district nursing) are administered in New Zealand by DHBs and ACC
- The Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) provides support if you’ve been injured by helping you to get back to work and everyday life as soon as possible.

If you’re not eligible for public assistance, there are other options such as:

- You can pay privately
- You may be eligible for care to be paid by another agency (e.g. another government department, a charity or health foundation or society)
- If you hold private medical insurance, your insurer may pay for home-based rehabilitation services and support.
