You can change providers without any financial penalty.
While the changes in funding do have provisions for providers to charge ‘exit fees’, you can only have a fee charged if you have a surplus in your package.
Before agreeing to an exit fee, ask for a statement of your package to check if there is any unspent money.
You should also check your current Home Care Agreement to see if there is a provision to charge an exit fee. If not then you can move without any financial penalty.
