While Child Care Subsidy/Additional Child Care Subsidy is generally paid to providers to pass on to parents as a fee reduction, it may need to be paid directly to parents in some specific scenarios. In particular, this will occur if a provider submits a child’s initial session reports before the parent finalises their Child Care Subsidy claim for that child.

Parents will also be paid directly if they report a change in circumstances that affects their entitlement for sessions of care for which subsidy has already been paid (for example, a retrospective change to a parent’s hours of recognised activity). In addition, any amount owing to a parent following the end of year reconciliation process will continue to be paid directly to the parent.

In all cases where a payment is made directly to the parent, the parent will be able to see a record of this payment through Centrelink Online or the Express Plus mobile app.
