Please note: This website will be updated as Victoria transitions to the National Funding Model from 1 July 2021 as a basis to determine hospital funding for Victorian public health services. The information on this page is for historical reference only.

The overarching goal of Activity Based Funding (ABF) is to provide a national platform for accurate and transparent allocation of funding to health services based upon activity performed.

This funding approach applies across the following health system service streams:

  • acute admitted care
  • emergency care
  • non-admitted care
  • subacute care
  • admitted mental health.
