Part A: Overview of the Practice Incentives for General Practices Fund
A.1 Fund backgroundIn the 2011-12 budget, funding of around $1.055 billion was allocated over four years to the Practice Incentives for General Practices Fund.
The fund consolidates the activities of several Practice Incentives Program (PIP) initiatives and the General Practice Immunisation Incentive (GPII) Scheme and provides a larger, flexible funding pool predominantly for incentive payments to general practices or Indigenous health services or general practitioners (GPs).
The fund can also be used to support targeted grants or one-off activities and some procurement activities. Top of page
