Eligibility

To be eligible for the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) Procedural GP Payment, your practice must meet PIP and other criteria.

To be eligible for the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) Procedural GP Payment, the practice must:    

  • participate in the PIP  
  • meet the PIP eligibility criteria  
  • have at least 1 procedural GP registered with the PIP for the entire reference period, providing 1 or more eligible procedural services 
  • meet the activity requirements for claiming the relevant payment tier 
  • be in a Rural, Remote and Metropolitan Area (RRMA) 3–7 location, as defined on the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare website, and 
  • ensure the GP providing the services has a level of professional indemnity insurance that indicates they are covered to perform procedural services

Practices that register their procedural GPs part way through a reference period can apply for the Procedural GP Payment during that reference period.

Practices will be eligible for payment in the first reference period where they have met all other eligibility requirements.

Practices need to ensure they meet all eligibility requirements for each entire reference period after that to continue to be eligible for payment.
