The Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Compendium provides guidance on the counting and classification rules associated with the Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Classification (Tier 2).
The Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Classification (Tier 2) was primarily developed to support the introduction of activity based funding (ABF) for non-admitted hospital services in the Australian public hospital system.

This guide is intended to provide assistance when assigning care types, especially for those patients that may potentially have care that applies to more than one care type.
This report presents the results of phase one of the project to develop Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG)1 Version (V) 8.0. This phase focuses on the case complexity component of the classification that has not been reviewed for many years
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.
The non-admitted study was comprehensive across a range of settings (e.g. outpatients, community and satellite clinics). Similarly all service streams were included regardless of funding source. This ensured that all services were accounted for and costed appropriately providing an accurate cost of delivering multiple services across multiple settings (e.g. overhead costs are apportioned across all patients).
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.
IHPA is responsible for determining relevant data set specifications to enable Activity Based Funding. These specifications have been developed in collaboration with IHPA’s committees and working groups.
