How to manage
You can manage incentives quickly and easily online. We also have forms available.
You can manage your practice details and participation using Practice Incentives Program (PIP) Online through Health Professional Online Services (HPOS) to:
- apply for the program
- view and update practice details
- get important program information
- apply for individual incentives
- confirm practice details for PIP annual confirmation statements
- add or change practitioners.
If you have an existing PIP practice you’ll need to link your RA number from your PRODA account to your practice.
When you log onto HPOS, remember to set your account preferences to get notifications and messages from us.
