The designation given by the IHPA may not reflect the full extent of the funding received by the hospital. For example, in some circumstances a hospital may receive both activity based funding and block funding. It is the designation that is intended to be collected.

The IHPA lists those hospitals designated to be block funded hospitals on its website - http://www.ihpa.gov.au/internet/ihpa/publishing.nsf/Content/nec-determination-2013-14~appendix-A
