Annual price negotiations are complete and the NZACA  can confirm a price increase of 3.0% to apply across the four levels of care in ARC for the 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021 contract year.  The spreadsheet with all Territorial Local Authority (TLA) rates as at 1 July 2020 is now available and can be downloaded from our website here.

In other aspects of the negotiation we are pleased to advise that short term and respite rates across the country will be harmonised and will be paid at the higher-level ARC bed day rates from 1 July 2020.
