National Pricing Model Technical Specifications 2012-13

This document was produced as an accompaniment to the NEP13 and NEC13 Determinations. It provides the technical specifications for how IHPA developed the ABF models for the service streams to be funded on this basis from 1 July 2012, and provides guidance to hospitals, Local Health Networks (LHN) and state and territory health authorities on how to apply these to hospital activity. It also shows how the NEC is determined for hospitals (such as small rural hospitals) funded on a block funded basis.
