The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia has announced that the registration fee for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners for 2013/14 will remain the same as in the previous year.
The Board has frozen the registration fee at $100. This fee will apply from 1 August and cover the registration period for most practitioners of 1 December 2013 to 30 November 2014.
The Board has frozen the fee as it is at a level that allows the regulatory work of the Board to continue, including its work to help keep the public safe, while continuing its focus on being a prudent and financially responsible regulator.
In addition to the registration fees received from registered practitioners, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia also receives funding support from governments. There is no cross subsidisation between professions in the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.
A fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW, will be published on the National Board’s website on 1 August 2013. Any variation to the fees payable by NSW practitioners will be announced by the Health Professional Councils Authority in NSW.1
More detailed information about the Board’s financial operations will be outlined in the Health Profession Agreement between the Board and AHPRA, which will be published on the website soon. This agreement sets out the services AHPRA will provide to support the Board to regulate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practice.
