The WIES document located in the Supporting Documents Section of the web site has been updated to include the WIES values for the 2012/13 financial year


Funding Agency

The funder agency is designed to be used in circumstances where a DHB has contracted out work to another agency but wants to ensure that the role of that DHB as funder is acknowledged.  The majority of these cases will when a DHB contracts work to a private provider for elective services.

Example one

DHB A enters into an agreement with a private hospital B to provide elective surgery.  The contract covers work for a regional population covering DHBs A, B, C, D.

DHB  A is the funder and their funding agency would be used.  The private hospital is the agency providing the service, so their agency code would be used.  DHBs B,C, D have used the service so will pay an  IDF to DHB A using the existing IDF payment system.  The IDF will be determined by looking at the patient domicile compared to the funding agency.

Example two

DHB A provides elective surgery through its own provider arm  for a regional population covering DHBs A, B, C, D.

DHB A is the funder and their funding agency would be used.  DHB A  is the agency providing the service, so their agency code would be used.  DHBs B,C, D have used the service so will pay an  IDF to DHB A using the existing IDF payment system. The IDF will be determined by looking at the patient domicile compared to the funding agency. 

Example three

DHB A provides elective surgery through its own provider arm  for a regional population covering DHBs A, B, C, D.  Due to a staff shortage they decide to purchase 200 cases under a fixed price contract from DHB E. 

either

DHB A is the funder and their funding agency would be used.  DHB E  is the agency providing the service, so their agency code would be used.  DHBs B,C, D have used the service so will pay an  IDF to DHB A using the existing IDF payment system.  The IDF will be determined by looking at the patient domicile compared to the funding agency.    DHB A then pays the fixed price  contract for the 200 cases to DHB E

or

DHB E is the funder and their funding agency would be used.  DHB E  is the agency providing the service, so their agency code would be used.  DHBs A, B,C, D have used the service so will pay an  IDF to DHB E using the existing IDF payment system.  The IDF will be determined by looking at the patient domicile compared to the funding agency.  DHB A and E then agree a separate payment to cover the difference between the fixed price contract and th eIDF payments.
