Working together for excellent healthcare in North Norfolk and rural Broadland

Marginal Rate Credit (MRC)

The marginal rate rule operates as a national variation to national prices the details of which are set out in section 6.3.1 of the 2014-15 National Tariff Payment System, which continues to have effect until the next national tariff is published.

Under the rule, commissioners are required to publish details of their plans for the investment of retained funds under the marginal rate rule.   Overall, commissioners must set aside sufficient budget to pay for 100% of the cost of emergency admissions and then spend the retained 30% on schemes to support the management of demand for emergency care.
