Prostheses List Reforms - Consultation Paper No 6b - Proposed New Cost Recovery Legislation

Closed 1 May 2023

Opened 20 Mar 2023


The purpose of this consultation paper is to provide stakeholders with the opportunity to understand, in greater detail, the proposed cost recovery arrangements related to the renamed Prostheses List which are planned to commence on 1 July 2023. This includes details related to legislative changes required to enact the proposed cost recovery arrangements. 

We ask that stakeholders provide feedback on the proposed cost recovery arrangements. This feedback will then be used to inform any other refinement of the cost recovery proposal.

As part of the consultation process, we convened an information webinar on Monday 3 April. We presented the information detailed in this consultation paper, and stakeholders had the opportunity to ask questions or raise concerns. We refer stakeholders to the webinar recording and slides at the bottom of this page.

This consultation closes on 1 May 2023.
