Basis of state and territory NHR funding and payments

To meet the reporting requirements of Section 240 of the National Health Reform Act 2011 (external link, opens in a new window) [http://www.comlaw.gov.au/Details/C2012C00746], the Administrator's monthly reports are to include the basis of each state and territory's NHR funding and payments to local hospital networks.

The basis of each state and territory's NHR funding and payments for each month (including the basis of any variations in monthly payments) is provided in the respective state and territory level report. See State and territory reports.

This information will enable comparisons over time within and between local hospital networks, and between state and territories, whether these are variations in:

  • Price
  • Movements between activity based funding service categories
  • Demographic adjustments applied
  • Amounts of block funding paid for the relevant block components
  • Changes to state or territory methodology
  • Any other reason.
