Subacute and non-acute care is currently classified using the Australian National Subacute and Non-Acute Patient (AN-SNAP) Classification Version 4 (V4), which has been used by the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) to price admitted subacute and non-acute care since 1 July 2016 for the purpose of activity based funding (ABF). IHPA undertakes regular review of all ABF classifications to ensure they reflect changes to patient complexity and cost over time. In 2018–19, IHPA commenced a review into the subacute and non-acute classification, resulting in the development of a refined classification.
