You need to meet eligibility requirements to get the Practice Incentives Program guidelines.
To be eligible for the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) your practice must meet certain criteria.
There are 3 types of payments under the PIP. Practice payments, service incentive payments, and rural loading payments.
We base most payments on a measure of the practice size known as the Standardised Whole Patient Equivalent (SWPE) value.
The Standardised Whole Patient Equivalent (SWPE) value of a practice is the sum of the fractions of care provided to practice patients. This is weighted for the age and gender of each patient.
To qualify for payments, practices must have submitted a completed application - including supporting documents.
We calculate payments and pay them retrospectively each quarter.
