NP Rebate Pre-Budget Submission

The ACNP submitted a Pre-Budget Submission for 2022-2023, supporting access to the Nurse Practitioner Workforce with support from 8 Peak nursing organisations. The submission contains two main proposals:

  • Proposal 1- Increasing the Rebates
    • Action - To increase Nurse Practitioner time based rebates
  • Proposal 2 - Closing the Gap
    • Action - Existing Close the Gap initiatives be extended to patients of Nurse Practitioners

The key objective of this proposal is to support the most immediate and critical needs of the NP workforce, and their patients, prior to implementation of any outcomes from the work of the NP 10 Year Plan Steering Committee.


The ACNP has provided our submission to the Australian Government Department of Health on the Friday 28th January 2022.
