Record as currency up to hundreds of millions of dollars. Rounded to nearest whole dollar.
This metadata item relates to all revenue received by establishments except for general revenue payments received from state or territory governments.
The Resources Working Party had considered splitting recoveries into staff meals and accommodation, and use of hospital facilities (private practice) and other recoveries.
Some states had felt that use of facilities was too sensitive as a separate identifiable item in a national minimum data set. Additionally, it was considered that total recoveries was an adequate category for health financing analysis purposes at the national level.
