Details

Monitor and NHS England’s 2016/17 National Tariff Payment System will come into effect from 1 April 2016.

This year’s national tariff aims to give providers of NHS services the space to restore financial balance and support providers and commissioners to make ambitious longer term plans for their local health economies.

We believe the tariff will help providers and commissioners to work together to manage demand and deliver services more efficiently.

Supporting documents

We’ve also published a number of supporting documents that can be read alongside our proposals for the 2016/17 national tariff:

Guidance on setting locally determined prices

How to submit local variations and local prices to Monitor, and how to agree to or apply for a local modification to a national price.

Guidance on mental health currencies and payments

Describes how providers can use the adult mental health currencies, and how they can be used by commissioners and providers as the basis for setting local prices.

A guide to the market forces factor

Provides information on the calculation and application of the market forces factor, a nationally determined variation to the national price, in 2016/17.

Guidance for commissioners on the marginal rate emergency rule and the 30 day readmission rule

Guidance to support commissioners to reinvest retained funds from the marginal rate emergency rule and the 30-day readmission rule.
