MyMedicare: What GPs must do to claim $300 aged care incentive

GPs will be able to delegate some of the visits to registrars, nurses or GP colleagues from the same practice.

GPs must provide an aged care patient eight consultations a year, plus two care planning services, to receive the new $300 aged care incentive under MyMedicare.

The incentive, scheduled to start in August, also pays $130 to the GP’s practice for each enrolled patient meeting these criteria.
