Description:
Subvention of Nursing Home Costs Under the Health (Nursing Homes) Act, 1990, persons who are accommodated in nursing homes may be entitled to apply to have the cost of their maintenance subvented by Health Boards. Whether a person qualifies for subvention depends firstly upon an applicant's level of dependency, which takes account of the person's physical and mental condition'. Health Boards classify such dependency into three categories - medium, high or maximum dependency. Following an assessment of dependency a means test is conducted. This determines whether a subvention is payable after account is taken of the means of the applicant. Maximum rates of subvention for each category are set out in regulations made under the Act.
