Dear Ms. Pinky Wan,

Thank you for providing a response to my Application for Access to Information dated 20 February 2024.

It is my understanding that the seven categories of NEPs under the HA pay code in 2005 are coded from NE1 to NE6, and NE9.

Could you please clarify the following:
(1) Whether "NE7 – Non-refoulement claimants under UNHCR" should in fact be "NE9".

I look forward to your clarification.

Yours sincerely,

Fung Hin Chung Eddy

Dear Ms. Pinky Wan,

Thank you for your response.

If I may direct you to the article: AU YEUNG SKC. Impact of Non-eligible Person Deliveries in Obstetric Service in Hong Kong. Hong Kong J Gynaecol Obstet Midwifery [Internet]. 2023 Mar. 31 [cited 2024 Apr. 6];6(1). Available from: https://hkjgom.org/home/article/view/65.

The above mentioned article reads "According to the HA pay code in 2005, there are seven categories of NEP (NE1-6 and NE9)".

Could you please clarify:
(1) Whether the "NE-9" caterogy of NEP has ever been or is currently in use;
(2) If so:
(a) The particulars of the NE-9 category;
(b) Whether it means that there are in fact over seven categories of NEP, coded NE1-7, NE9, and others.

I look forward to your clarification.

Yours sincerely,

Fung Hin Chung Eddy

HAHO Divisional AIO 3, Hospital Authority
