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 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 purpose of this costing study was to undertake an analysis of CALD patients to inform a policy decision for whether an adjustment is warranted to the National Efficient Price for CALD patients.
The purpose of this report is to review the costs of providing care to Indigenous patients accessing public hospital services. This work was commissioned in response to stakeholder concerns that the national activity based funding system does not adequately reflect Indigenous patient costs.
The 2015-16 Pricing Framework builds on the three previous Pricing Frameworks (2012-13 Pricing Framework, 2013-14 Pricing Framework and 2014-15 Pricing Framework). For simplicity, where IHPA has reaffirmed a previous principle, the supporting argument has not been restated in this year’s paper. IHPA issued the Pricing Framework prior to releasing the NEP and NEC Determinations, which were made publicly available in March 2015.
