The FINAL Private health insurance report version 3.0.0 electronic reporting specification has been published to the Software developers website. The final version 3.0.0 of the specification will replace version 2.1.1 for the 2015 and subsequent financial year reporting periods.
Private health insurance funds must use version 3.0.0 of the specification to report member information on line directly to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) using the ATO Business portal.
The FINAL specification incorporates updates to reflect direct reporting to the ATO by funds.
To enable funds to report directly to the ATO, the significant changes for software developed products follow:
- The build to include Supplier data records 1, 2 and 3 and the associated data record information into the Private health insurance report data file.
- The inclusion of the count of Supplier data records 1, 2 and 3 in the Count of total records field in the File total data record.
- Change to allowable values for the Type of data indicator in the Reporting Entity data record.
A detailed list of all changes can be found in the section ‘Changes to this version of the specification’ in the published FINAL specification.
