Hi! There is no certainty here, so to "ensure" is too strong. A good test, if you are a person of good judgment, would be to ask of the current threshold - if we take decisions based on this is it likely that the result will overwhelm the healthcare budget? If so, then the threshold is too high. Lower it!
In the unlikely event that you estimate the opposite impact on the budget, Raise it!
Best to play this conceptual game at a table with locally knowledgable colleagues.
