What payments can I get

Most payments are for quality care activities. This includes payments for eHealth, quality improvement, teaching, Indigenous health, after hours care, procedural activities and rural locations.

After joining PIP, practices may be eligible to get an initial PIP payment in the first payment quarter after approval.

Payments are made in February, May, August and November each year, as long as your practice is eligible.

We calculate payments based on information from your practice. It’s important to let us know of any changes to your practice arrangements.

Your practice can spend payments in any way you choose. Taxation rules apply. However, the PIP payment is intended to support the practice in purchasing additional equipment, upgrading facilities or offering additional payment to doctors working at the practice.
