Budget Statements: Health and Ageing Portfolio

(Question No. 1148)

Mr Briggs asked the Minister for Health, in writing, on 16 August 2012:

In respect of Outcome 9, Program 9.1: Private health insurance, for (i) 2012-13, (ii) 2013-14, (iii) 2014-15, and (iv) 2015-16, what is the breakdown of sub-programs, and their respective allocated funding and administrative costs.

Ms Plibersek: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The 2012-13 Portfolio Budget Statements for the Health and Ageing Portfolio provide information on the agency’s resources and planned performance with details provided of administered and departmental expenditure for each program, as well as the objective. This information is under a number of key headings, including the following:

Budget Measures (Section 1.3) - highlight new Government decisions taken since the tabling of the last set of appropriations bills. These include measure titles and administered and departmental estimates for the current year, the Budget year and forward years;

Outcome reporting (Section 2) - includes the Outcome Budgeted Expenses and Resource Statement for each outcome, providing an overview of the total expenses for each outcome by program; and

Program report (Section 2) - focuses on the objective of each program, its resourcing, the deliverables it produces and the key performance indicators of its progress.
