Surgical House and CAPS

The continence aids payment scheme (CAPS) is a government scheme to financially assist people who have permanent and severe incontinence, helping them meet some of the cost of incontinence management products.

The CAPS payment rate for 2018-19 is up to $596.60. The payment is indexed each year, meaning it may slightly increase or decrease following the Government’s Budget process. Those eligible to receive CAPS funding have the choice of one full payment in July or two half payments in July and January of each year.

If you are an Australian citizen or a permanent Australian resident, aged 5 years or older experiencing one of the following you are eligible for CAPS.

  • Permanent and severe loss of bladder and/ bowel function. Caused by a neurological condition

  • Permanent and severe loss of bladder and/ or bowel function caused by another condition provided the person has a Department of Veterans’ Affairs Pension Concession Card. This can be a primary or dependent cardholder.

  • Permanent and severe loss of bladder/ or bowel function caused by another condition provided the person has a Centrelink pensioner Concession card. Again as a primary or dependent cardholder.
