New Health Technology Policy
Date published: 15 December 2022
The Independent Health and Aged Care Pricing Authority (IHACPA) recognises the need for the pricing of public hospital services to respond in a timely manner to the introduction of new health technologies and innovations in models of care.
IHACPA, in consultation with its advisory committees and classification working groups, will assess new health technologies for incorporation into the activity based funding classifications where they are not adequately accounted for in the pricing of public hospital services, based on submissions received from jurisdictions, advisory bodies and other stakeholders.
Submissions for new health technologies
Submissions for new health technologies can be made at any time through the IHACPA Australian Classification Exchange by registered users. Further information on the submission process is available below.
