NHS England and Monitor have published a letter giving an update on preparations for, and engagement on their proposals for the 2016/17 National Tariff Payment System (NTPS).
The proposals will be laid out in further detail over the coming weeks in the form of 2 documents:
- The first will set out the currencies they intend to set prices for and how they set prices. This will include draft price relativities for 2016/17.
- The second document will set out plans for national variations and locally determined prices.
Later in the year they will seek feedback on proposals around reimbursement arrangements for specialised care.
MAP will update you when each of these documents are published.
