Update re Parental Agreement and Co-Payment tool

Now that the subsidy uplift has taken place, providers will be aware of the need to update their Parental Agreements. These need to be completed by 2 March.

Please note the calculations produced in the Co-Payment tool and/or the semi-automated Parental Agreement are based on the basis of registration information entered by the Service Provider for the child. It does not take into account any NCS closure periods. Providers should review the calculations produced to ensure they apply to their service’s particular circumstances. If providers have additional unfunded days you may need to adjust the calculations/contract accordingly. 

We are currently working to add unfunded NCS closure date functionality and to make the Parental Agreement editable by providers.

If providers need any support in preparing Parental Agreements, please contact the provider support team at Pobal.
