National health reform payment and funding flows
National health reform funding types
A system of funding based on the number of services provided to patients and the cost to be paid for delivering those services
When a state pool account has an overnight credit balance, interest accrues in the account and is paid by the Reserve Bank of Australia to the state or territory
If more money is deposited than required, this can be paid back to the state or territory health department or used for the next payment to the state or territory
