Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia sets fees for 2014/15

The Board has announced that the national registration fee for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practitioners for 2014/15 will remain the same as in the previous year.

The Board has frozen the registration fee at $100. It will cover the registration period for most practitioners of 1 December 2014 to 30 November 2015.

The decision to keep the fee frozen is in keeping with the guiding principles of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme, which include that it should operate in an efficient, effective and fair way, and that the fees should be reasonable.

In addition to the registration fees received from registered practitioners, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Practice Board of Australia has received 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.1

More detailed information about the Board’s financial operations will be outlined in the Health Profession Agreement between the Board and AHPRA for 2014/15, which will be published on the website soon. This agreement sets out the partnership between the Board and AHPRA, and the services AHPRA will provide to support the Board to regulate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health practice.
