National Efficient Cost Determination

The Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority (IHACPA) publishes an annual National Efficient Cost (NEC) Determination for public hospital services for each coming financial year. The NEC underpins funding for services that are not suitable for activity based funding, such as small rural hospitals. The NEC determines the Commonwealth Government contribution to block funded hospitals.
