The Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services 2020-21 (the Pricing Framework) is the key strategic document underpinning the National Efficient Price (NEP) and National Efficient Cost (NEC) Determinations for the financial year 2020-21.
IHPA has issued the Pricing Framework prior to releasing the NEP20 and NEC20 Determinations, which will be publicly available in March 2020, with the intention of providing an additional layer of transparency and accountability.

The National Health Reform Act 2011 (the Act), section 131(1)(f), provides that IHPA will determine the public hospital functions that are to be funded in the states and territories by the Commonwealth, except where otherwise agreed between the Commonwealth and a state or territory.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is currently developing a new classification for non-admitted care - the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification (ANACC) - in response to the recommendations of public consultations in 2013 and 2014 on non-admitted care classification.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority is committed to providing the Australian health care industry with a nationally consistent method of classifying all types of patients, their treatment and associated costs. Consequently, resources continue to be devoted to the ongoing development of a Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG) classification system based on local clinical practice.
