A light lunch will be provided for each Stakeholder Information Session.
Please note, there is limited seating available at each session and we will need to confirm attendance on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Once we have filled the allocated seating, we will notify any further respondents that they are on a waiting list for the session. If we have confirmed your attendance, and you then have a change of plans, please let us know so we can bring someone off the waiting list.
In advance of attending a Stakeholder Information Session, it would be useful to re-visit the following documents:
The Primary Maternity Services Amendment Notice (2020) details the 2020 fee schedule in place as of July 1, 2020. This fee schedule was then replaced by The Primary Maternity Services Amendment (2) Notice (2020) in place from October 1, 2020 (see below).
The Primary Maternity Services Amendment (2) Notice (2020) details the interim increase in payments which has been in place to distribute specific funding provided in Budget 2020. This funding was allocated to remunerate care for women with complex clinical and social care requirements, and those whānau living rurally.
The Categories for Referral are particularly relevant to the Additional Care Supplement, which will be discussed during the Information Session.
