EnableNSWprovides assistance for consumers requiring aids for continence problems. The Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing also provides assistance for people requiring aids for continence problems through the Continence AidsPayment Scheme (CAPS).
The CAPS is a Scheme that provides a payment to assist eligible people who have permanent and severe incontinence to meet some of the costs of their continence products. The CAPS will provide greater choice and flexibility for clients to allow them to purchase the most appropriate continence products from the supplier of their choice. The CAPS scheme was implemented on the 1st July 2010.
If you have any questions about the CAPS Scheme, please contact Medicare Australia on 132 011 and select option 1 or visit the CAPS website.
EnableNSW policy requires eligible consumers to use CAPS assistance each year before accessing assistance through EnableNSW.
