2019/20 payment reform proposals
We are proposing a number of changes to the payment system in 2019/20 and are looking for feedback on our proposals.
In partnership with NHS Improvement we have published proposals for the 2019/20 national tariff. This includes proposals to update the market forces factor (MFF), which estimates the unavoidable cost differences between healthcare providers, based on their geographical location.
