Consultations overview

IHACPA is committed to ongoing open and transparent consultation with the Australian Commonwealth Government, states and territories, the health sector, health stakeholders and the general community.

To ensure consultation is meaningful, IHACPA publishes a range of documents every year in draft form and makes a request for stakeholders to provide feedback and comments via a submission process.

Corporate Services

Corporate Services provide business support services in the areas of finance, human resource management, procurement, information and communication technology and governance.

Submissions were forwarded to IHACPA in a range of formats including Word, RTF, PDF and handwritten or typed hardcopy. In order to make submissions available as soon as possible, most submissions have been published in their original format. Handwritten submissions have been scanned into PDF documents. If the content has been emailed to IHACPA the text of email submissions has been reproduced in Word format.

If you need help please contact IHACPA by email or by calling +61 2 8215 1100.

Consultation Cycle

Feedback gathered from jurisdictional, stakeholder and public consultations is crucial to the success of the Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority’s work program.

Each year, IHACPA releases its Work Program outlining the key areas of work for the following year for public consultation. 

IHACPA also releases the Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services for public consultation each year. The Pricing Framework outlines the key principles which will underline the release of the National Efficient Price and National Efficient Cost within that year. 

In addition to public and jurisdictional consultations, IHACPA utilises its wide range of committees and working groups to guide its work program. Members of each group offer expertise in a range of fields and represent the broad range of stakeholders within the health sector.
