Small Rural Health Services funding stream

The Small Rural Health Services funding model in Victoria will not transition to the National Weighted Activity Unit (NWAU) in 2021-22.

However, as the WIES model will not continue in 2021-22, the Department of Health will report relevant activity using NWAU. Small Rural Health Services that receive variable targets for admitted acute activity (for example renal dialysis) will have those targets expressed in NWAU from 2021-22.

The department is reviewing the national funding model for block funded health services as contained in the National Efficient Cost Determination and how it can best be implemented.
