Commonwealth State Health Funding Agreement

To address this, the budget announced that the government would try to lift the restriction on the NHRA that prevents hospitals from claiming a supplement. The budget announced that the hospital funding model agreed in the Rudd government`s 2011 National Health Reform Agreement (NHRA) would expire from July 2017. [2] The NRHA, which has been agreed to by all jurisdictions, defines the common Commonwealth and state and territory funding of public hospitals. Through this agreement, we will ensure that Australia`s healthcare system remains one of the best in the world and provides the best possible health outcomes for Australians. The new agreement also implies a commitment by all Australian governments to a shared long-term vision for health system reform, at a time when joint investment and coordination in the health sector has never been more important than it is today. . .
