Electronic Private Patient Hospital Claim Form (ePPHC)

The purpose of this circular is to remind Commonwealth declared private hospitals (both overnight and day-only) that the Department of Health and Ageing will cease to support the ePPHC application. No further support will be provided as of 1 July 2012.

Future changes to the file structure of the HCP and PHDB data collections will not be supported by the ePPHC, therefore when the file structure changes any submissions created using the ePPHC will be invalid.

Alternative arrangements for submission of PHDB data will need to be made.
Please contact your peak body for advice regarding other software applications that provide the same or similar functionality.

If you have any questions, please send them to the HCP inbox at

If you require further information please telephone: (02) 6289 9853/24 hr answering machine or email the enquiry to
