    31. NHF

    32. Financing Options Contributions of 5% of monthly income; 2.5% from employers and 2.5% from employees an annual GoA contribution from the Consolidated Fund which will include Monies used to pay for health coverage for Civil Servants Monies allocated to medical treatment overseas Monies currently paid to the Health Authority of Anguilla Any other sources as may be decided by GoA Executive Council from time to time

    33. Anguilla NHF Operations The Fund will buy health care services from providers offering services to a standard acceptable to the Fund It will be managed by a technical capacity able to negotiate quality and prices with providers.

    34. Anguilla NHF Operations Providers will include the HAA and approved private practitioners. Selected overseas hospitals will provide specialist tertiary care that cannot be provided adequately on-island

    35. Payment for Procedures Primary care will be purchased by the Fund for consumers Providers will be contracted (through an annual service agreement) based on the number of consumers registered with them, and not on a fee-per-item-of-service reimbursement basis.

    36. Anguilla NHF Operations Access to hospital and specialist care paid for by the Fund will be through referral by approved primary care providers only. Access to sub-specialist care overseas paid for by the Fund will be only through referral by approved secondary care providers in practice, the HAA.

    37. Anguilla NHF Operations Overseas specialist care will be purchased on a fee-for-service basis but under pre-agreed unit rates. Charges, utilisation rates and the validity of treatment will be monitored by the Fund to maintain quality and value-for-money, and to stay within budget.

    38. Patient Registration Providers will be accredited to provide services under the NHF subject to the satisfaction of the Director of the NHF that services provided are of a sufficiently high standard

    39. Patient Registration Consumers will be required to register at one primary care provider within 3 months of registering with the NHF They may do this at the start of the Funds operations or when they visit a provider for the first time.

    40. Patient Registration All dependents and family members will register with the same provider and providers will be limited by a maximum list size in order to ensure quality of care The maximum list size will be decided by the Fund but is likely not to exceed 2,000 persons to include NHF-funded and non-NHF patients.

    41. Patient Registration Providers are prohibited from excluding patients wishing to register with them until the maximum list size of patients has been reached.

    42. Patient Registration Patients may register with another provider under the following conditions: the receiving provider has space on his/her register for the entire family at least 30 days notice changes cannot exceed more than 3 in a calendar year
