The Private Health Insurance (Benefit Requirements) Amendment Rules 2018 (No. 6) (Amendment Rules) updates the reference to the latest Second Tier Advisory Committee (STAC) approved list of second tier eligible facilities published in this circular.

Ten additional facilities have been added to the previously approved STAC list, this list can be viewed at Second Tier Advisory Committee - Additions. Three facilities have been removed from the STAC list due to facility closures and this list can be viewed at Second Tier Advisory Committee - Deletions.

This list is the final second-tier eligible hospital list approved by the Second Tier Advisory Committee. As advised in circular PHI 60/18, there are changes to the administration of second-tier eligible hospitals. From 1 January 2019, the Second-Tier Advisory Committee will no longer maintain the list of second-tier eligible hospitals. The Commonwealth Department of Health will take on this function. The Department will release a separate circular outlining the application process.
