Health Expenditure Advisory Committee (HEAC) oversees the development of health expenditure statistics and meets two or three times a year. It provides a mechanism for both data users and data suppliers of health expenditure statistics to give advice and assistance to the Institute about the methods used in developing the national estimates and the way those estimates are presented and analysed.
The committee consists of representatives from AIHW, the Department of Health, state and territory health departments, the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Commonwealth Grants Commission, the Department of Veterans' Affairs, Medicare Australia, The Treasury and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority. It is anticipated that the range of participating organisations may be expanded over time to include some other non-government organisations and academics with an interest in expenditure on health in Australia.
