Practices are competing to register patients for the Indigenous Health Incentive to reap the annual sign-up payments without providing long-term care, the RACGP says.

At least 1500 practices currently receive $250 a year for each Indigenous patient with a chronic disease who completes the annual registration paperwork and receives, or is offered, an Aboriginal health check.
