Australian Health-Care Structure and Funding

This figure shows the major flows of funding between the government and non-government sectors and the providers of health goods and services.

The flow of money around the Australian health-care system is complex and the institutional frameworks in place, both government and non-government, determine how this occurs. The government sector includes the Australian and state and territory governments and, in some jurisdictions, local government. The non-government sector comprises individuals, private health insurers and other non-government funding sources. Other non-government sources principally include workers compensation, compulsory motor vehicle third-party insurers, funding for research from non-government sources and miscellaneous non-patient revenue that hospitals receive.
