Part 2          Type A procedures

3.               Interpretation

A Type A procedure is a procedure specified in this Part provided to a patient in one of the categories of patients in clauses 4 to 9.

4.               Advanced surgical patient

(1)        In this Schedule, advanced surgical patient has the meaning given by this clause.

(2)        A patient is taken to be an advanced surgical patient upon admission to a hospital:

(a)                    from and including the day before a professional service of the type identified by the item number in the MBS which is specified in subclause (3) is rendered to the patient at that hospital, unless the particular advanced surgical procedure to be rendered is recognised as requiring a longer pre‑operative period; or

(b)                   if a longer pre-operative period than that referred to in paragraph (a) is required, from and including the day of admission of the patient for the purpose of providing the professional service of the type mentioned in paragraph (a); or

(c)                    if the advanced surgery is rendered to a patient during an admission, from the day the advanced surgery involving a professional service of the type mentioned in paragraph (a) is performed (not the day before).

Note:         The effect of the reference in subclause (2) (a) to a professional service, being a service for which a medicare benefit is payable, is that a professional service must have been provided to the patient for the minimum benefit to apply.

(3)        The item numbers for this clause are the following items in the MBS, but only where those items have a fee in the MBS greater than $837.05:

Schedule 4―Nursing-home type patient accommodation:  hospitals in all States/Territories

1.               Circumstances

(1)        For rule 5 of Part 2 of these Rules, the circumstances specified for hospital treatment to which this Schedule applies are that the treatment is provided:

(a)                    to a nursing-home type patient; and

(b)                   at a hospital.

Note:         The definition of hospital treatment in section 121-5 of the Act includes that the treatment is provided either at the hospital or provided or arranged with the direct involvement of a hospital.  This Schedule sets out benefit requirements only for treatment provided at the relevant hospital ― see paragraph 121-5 (1) (c) of the Act.

2.               Interpretation

Nursing-home type patient, in relation to a hospital, means a patient who has been provided with hospital treatment whether:

(a)                    acute care; or

(b)                    accommodation and nursing care, as an end in itself; or

(c)                    a mixture of both,

for a continuous period of hospitalisation exceeding 35 days (35-day period), but a patient receiving acute care immediately after the 35-day period does not become a nursing-home type patient unless the period of acute care ends and the patient is then provided with accommodation and nursing care, as an end in itself, as part of a continuous period of hospitalisation.

Note 1:     'Continuous period of hospitalisation' is defined in rule 3 of Part 1 of these Rules.

Note 2:     Clause 4 deals with nursing-home type patients whose care needs change to requiring acute care.

Note 3:     If there is disagreement as to whether a patient is, or is not, a nursing‑home type patient, an insured person, a private health insurer or a health care provider may make a complaint to the Private Health Insurance Ombudsman under Part 6-2 of the Act.  The Ombudsman has various powers to deal with complaints, including conducting mediation if the complainant agrees.

3.               Application

(1)        Clause 2 of this Schedule applies to a patient who on or after the day on which the Private Health Insurance (Benefit Requirements) Amendment Rules 2007 (No. 4) commence:

(a)                    returns to hospital for hospital treatment at a hospital not later than 7 days after receiving hospital treatment at that hospital or another hospital; or

(b)                   is otherwise admitted to a hospital for hospital treatment at the hospital.

(2)        If subclause (1) does not apply to a patient, the definition of 'nursing‑home type patient' in these Rules before the commencement of the Private Health Insurance (Benefit Requirements) Amendment Rules 2007 (No. 4) continues to apply to that patient.

Note:         Clause 4 deals with nursing-home type patients whose care needs change to requiring acute care.

 

4.               Provision of acute care

If a nursing-home type patient is provided with acute care at the hospital (the first hospital), or at another hospital, the patient:

(a)                    ceases to be a nursing‑home type patient only for the days on which the acute care is provided; and

(b)                   again becomes a nursing‑home type patient when the provision of acute care ends and the patient is then provided with accommodation and nursing care as an end in itself, whether at the first hospital or another hospital.

5.               Ceasing and resuming hospital treatment

If a nursing-home type patient, or a person referred to in paragraph 4 (a), leaves hospital but returns to a hospital, whether or not at the same hospital, not more than 7 days later and is provided with hospital treatment at the hospital, the patient is a nursing‑home type patient for each subsequent day that the patient is provided with accommodation and nursing care, as an end in itself, until the patient ceases to be provided with hospital treatment at a hospital for a period of more than 7 days.

Note:       If the relevant period of hospitalisation is broken by more than 7 days, clause 2 of this Schedule may again apply to the person.

 

6.               Minimum benefit

The minimum benefit for hospital treatment provided in the circumstances described in this Schedule is the amount set out in Table 1 or 2 of this Schedule for that hospital treatment.

Schedule 5―Second-tier default benefits

1.               Interpretation

(1)        In this Schedule:

facility means a private hospital specified in clause 4 of this Schedule.

(2)        In this Schedule, except in subclause (4) of this clause, the ACT is taken to be part of NSW and the Northern Territory is taken to be part of the State of South Australia.

(3)        In this Schedule, private hospitals are comparable if they fall within the same category from the following list:

(a)                    private hospitals which provide psychiatric care for at least 50% of the episodes of hospital treatment;

(b)                   private hospitals which provide rehabilitation care for at least 50% of the episodes of hospital treatment;

(c)                    private hospitals which do not fall into categories (a) or (b), with up to and including 50 licensed beds;

(d)                   private hospitals which do not fall into categories (a) or (b) with more than 50 licensed beds and up to and including 100 licensed beds;

(e)                    private hospitals which do not fall into categories (a) or (b), with more than 100 licensed beds, without an accident and emergency unit or a specialised cardiac care unit;

(f)                    private hospitals which do not fall into categories (a) or (b), with more than 100 licensed beds, with either (or both) an accident and emergency unit or a specialised cardiac care unit;

(g)                   private hospitals which only provide hospital treatment which does not include any part of an overnight stay.

(4)        In subclause (3), a reference to licensed beds is a reference to the beds or patients that a private hospital is permitted, under State or Territory legislation in the State or Territory where the private hospital is located.

2.               Circumstances

For rules 4 and 5 of Part 2 of these Rules, the circumstances for hospital treatment to which this Schedule applies are that the treatment is provided to a patient who is not a nursing-home type patient and the treatment is  provided at a facility.

Note:         The definition of hospital treatment in section 121-5 of the Act includes that the treatment is provided either at the hospital or provided or arranged with the direct involvement of a hospital.  This Schedule sets out benefit requirements only for treatment provided at the relevant hospital ― see paragraph 121-5 (1) (c) of the Act.

3.               Minimum benefit

(1)        Despite anything in Schedules 1, 2 or 3, but subject to subclause (2) of this clause, the minimum benefit for hospital treatment provided in the circumstances described in clause 2 of this Schedule is the amount worked out in accordance with this clause.

(2)        Where hospital treatment is provided in the circumstances described in clause 2 of this Schedule, but:

(a)        the minimum benefit worked out in accordance with this clause for the hospital treatment is below the amount determined in accordance with Schedules 1, 2 or 3 of these Rules; or

(b)        an amount for the hospital treatment cannot be worked out in accordance with this clause,

 

the minimum benefit for that hospital treatment is the amount worked out in accordance with Schedules 1, 2 or 3 for that hospital treatment.

(3)        If a hospital ceases to be a facility for the purposes of this Schedule, the minimum benefit in relation to an episode of hospital treatment for an insured person who was an admitted patient at the facility or booked for hospital treatment at the facility (as opposed to merely being on the facility’s waiting list) before the day that the hospital ceased to be a facility is the minimum benefit that would have applied if the hospital continued to be a facility at the time the treatment was provided.

(4)        Subject to subclauses (2) and (8) the minimum benefit payable by an insurer for an episode of hospital treatment between 1 September of a particular year (the first year) and 31 August of the next year is an amount no less than 85% of the average charge for the equivalent episode of hospital treatment, under that insurer's negotiated agreements in force on 1 August of the first year with all such comparable private hospitals in the State in which the facility is located.

(5)        The formula for calculating the average charge for the equivalent episode of hospital treatment by an insurer in each State is as follows:

 

           

Where:   j =     group of equivalent episodes of hospital treatment under the insurer's negotiated agreements;

i =     group of the insurer's negotiated agreements in force on 1 August of the first year with comparable private hospitals in the State;

n=     the number of the insurer's negotiated agreements in force on 1 August of the first year with comparable private hospitals in the State;

Rji =  charge for episode of hospital treatment type j in the negotiated agreement i

Rj =   average charge for episode of hospital treatment type j.

(6)        In subclause (4), each episode of hospital treatment must be identified using the patient classification system and payment structure in the majority of the relevant insurer's negotiated agreements in force on 1 August of the first year with all comparable private hospitals in the State in which the facility is located.

(7)        In subclause (4), for the purpose of calculating the average charge for the equivalent episode of hospital treatment in a State:

(a)                    the charge will include the sum of the amount payable by the insurer under that insurer's negotiated agreement and any excess or co‑payment amounts payable by members, in accordance with the insurer's rules; and

Note:        Policy holders’ financial obligations under such levels of cover will still apply.

(b)                   must not include any charges:

(i)                      referred to in the insurer's negotiated agreements for prostheses; and

(ii)                    that are minimum benefits for prostheses as specified for the purpose of item 4 of the table in subsection 72-1 (2) of the Act, and

(iii)                  referred to in the insurer's negotiated agreements for hospital treatment provided to nursing-home type patients.

(8)        Subject to subclause (2), if an insurer has less than 5 negotiated agreements in force on 1 August of the first year with a particular category of comparable private hospitals in a State, then all of that insurer's negotiated agreements with all classes of private hospitals in that State are to be used to calculate the minimum benefit.
