    Framework

A jurisdiction may request the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) to consider any legitimate and unavoidable costs in the delivery of public hospital services. The purpose of this Framework is to outline the process by which IHPA will assess submissions from jurisdictions on legitimate and unavoidable cost variations and determine whether adjustments to the national efficient price are warranted.
