PIP Indigenous Health Incentive

PIP Indigenous Health Incentive

The PIP Indigenous Health Incentive supports general practices and Indigenous health services.

The incentive aims to help with better health care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander patients.

This includes best practice management of chronic disease.

Eligible patients must:

• be of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin

• be 15 years or older, and

• have a chronic disease.

Patient Registration

• Use HPOS to register patients online.

• Register patients with the practice that is, or will be, their ‘usual care provider’—this is the practice

that has given the patient most of the care over the last 12 months or will be providing most of

the care to the patient over the next 12 months.

• The patient must agree to have the practice written on the Indigenous Health Incentive and PBS

Co-payment Measure patient registration and consent form (IP017) at humanservices.gov.au/pip

This consent means they expect the practice will be their usual care provider and oversee their

chronic disease management.
