Prostheses List Reforms - Consultation paper No 6a - Proposed Listing Criteria

Closed 1 May 2023

Opened 20 Mar 2023


The purpose of this paper is to provide additional information about the listing criteria that are proposed to apply for medical devices and human tissue products to be included in the Private Health Insurance (Medical Devices and Human Tissue Products) Rules.

We ask that stakeholders provide feedback on the proposed listing criteria and any ideas they have regarding the issues in the consultation paper. This feedback will then be used to inform any further refinement of the listing criteria.

As part of the consultation process, we invite stakeholders to attend our webinar on Monday 3 April. We will go through the information detailed in this consultation paper, and stakeholders will have the opportunity to ask questions or raise concerns.

The feedback provided in this consultation will inform potential improvements to the proposed listing criteria.

Please download the documents and complete the survey.

This consultation closes on 1 May 2023.
