Private Health Insurer Code Changes

This circular replaces PHI circular 26/10 which advised of two private health insurer code changes.

From 1 July 2010, Queensland Country Health’s code will change from MIM to QCH. This change applies to all aspects of the business, including Hospital Casemix Protocol (HCP) data submissions, Medicare Australia and Australian Tax Office transactions. The HCP working group was advised of this change at the 17 September 2008 meeting.

From 1 July 2010, Medibank Private’s code will change from MBP to MPL for HCP submissions only. All other transactions currently using MBP will remain unchanged. The HCP working group was advised of the change at the 3 June 2009 meeting.

Hospitals submitting HCP data to either Queensland Country Health or Medibank Private will need to use these new private health insurer codes from 1 July 2010.

If you require further information please telephone: (02) 6289 9853/24 hr answering machine or email the enquiry to Private Health Insurance Branch
