Admitted Subacute funding approach

Victoria's Subacute funding model is based on the Australian National Subacute and Non Acute Patient (AN-SNAP) classification system Version 4.

The model uses 94 of the classification system's classes across four care types (rehabilitation, GEM, palliative care and maintenance care). Each AN-SNAP class is allocated a cost weight to determine the level of funding. 

The funding policy for admitted subacute is based on:

  • AN-SNAP v4 classification
  • +/- 4 day additive boundary policy
  • Episode-based funding approach for rehabilitation and GEM
  • Phase of care funding approach for palliative care
  • Bed day cost weights maintenance care.

Further details regarding Victoria's Admitted Subacute funding approach can be found in the Department's Policy and Funding Guidelines.
