The 2012-13 NSW Health Funding Guidelines provide information on the state funding framework for allocating funds to Local Health Districts and Specialty Health Networks. As part of the funding reforms being implemented nationally, activity based funding (ABF) is being used to fund non-admitted services. The intention in 2012/13 is to continue to block fund these services in NSW although Commonwealth funding to NSW for these services will be on an activity basis.
This technical paper is a summary of the process and should be read in conjunction with
the NSW Funding Guidelines and other ABF factsheets.
