This will help more patients access multidisciplinary team-based care in general practices.
The changes to the WIP - Practice Stream include:
- increasing the maximum incentive amount from $125,000 to $130,000 per practice, per year before rural loading is applied
- decreasing Standardised Whole Patient Equivalent (SWPE) for the maximum incentive from 5000 to 4000 so more practices can access the maximum payment
- increasing the payment by up to 30% with the amount based on the practice SWPE, health professional types and average hours worked.
You won’t need to do anything to get the increased payments. We’ll make the necessary changes to the payment calculation.
The first increased payment will happen in August 2023.
