The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) has released its Consultation paper on the Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services 2019-20.
The consultation is open to the public until Thursday 12 July 2018.
IHPA’s annual Pricing Framework outlines the principles and policies to be adopted by the agency to set the National Efficient Price and National Efficient Cost Determinations for each financial year. It is released prior to the Determinations, following extensive consultation with states and territories, IHPA’s stakeholders and the general public.
The focus of this year’s consultation is to seek feedback on the ongoing approach to the implementation of pricing and funding for safety and quality.
