Each year, the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) publishes the General List of In-Scope Public Hospital Services (the General List) as part of the National Efficient Price Determination. The General List defines public hospital services eligible for Commonwealth funding, except where funding is otherwise agreed between the Commonwealth and a state or territory.
This Policy outlines the scope of public hospital services that form the General List and provides guidance for jurisdictions on the process to request IHPA to consider services for inclusion or exclusion from the General List.
