During 2019–20, total health spending was $202.5 billion. Of this, more than two-thirds (70.4% or $142.6 billion) was government funded (42.7% by the Australian Government and 27.7% from state and territory governments). The remaining 29.6% was funded by non‑government sources (Figure 8).
The line graph shows that the proportions of total health spending by source of funds remained relatively stable between 2009–10 and 2019–20. The Australian Government and state and territory governments funded majority of total health spending in 2019–20, with each source funding 42.7 per cent and 27.7 per cent respectively. Non-government sources made up the rest with individuals, health insurance providers and other non-government sources funding 14.7 per cent, 8.2 per cent and 6.7 per cent respectively in 2019–20.
