Practice Incentives Program

Rural Loading Incentive

The rural loading recognises the difficulties of providing care, often with little professional support, in rural and remote areas.

The PIP Rural Loading Incentive guidelines are effective from November 2013.

The PIP rural loading is higher for practices in more remote areas, in recognition of the added difficulties of providing medical care.

For more information, read the Rural Loading Incentive guidelines.
