There is no change to the current payment amount or capping. Quarterly payments at the current payment rate of $6.50 per Standardised Whole Patient Equivalent (SWPE) per annum, up to the cap of $12,500 per quarter will be made retrospectively to practices that adhere to the eligibility requirements for the entire payment quarter, up to and including the ‘point in time’ date.
Payments for the new eligibility requirements will commence from the August 2016 payment onward. This covers the period 1 May 2016 - 31 July 2016. You must ensure that you meet all eligibility requirements, including the new requirement to upload a minimum number of shared health summaries, before the point in time and meet all the other requirements for the entire quarter. Failure to meet the new eHealth Incentive requirements applying from 1 May 2016 may result in recovery of payments to which the practice was not entitled.
Practices must meet all eligibility requirements of the incentive to be eligible to receive an eHealth Incentive payment. There will be no partial payments for practices that are or remain ready to use the My Health Record from 1 May 2016 or that meet only part of the requirements. To continue to receive the incentive payment, eHealth Incentive registered general practices need to meet all of the five eligibility requirements, including the new requirement, from 1 May 2016. Where a practice does not believe that they will meet all eligibility requirements by the point in time, they must withdraw from the eHealth Incentive, or opt out of the incentive for that payment quarter. Practices that chose to opt out of a payment quarter will automatically be opted back into the next payment quarter. Failure to meet the new eHealth Incentive requirements applying from 1 May 2016 may result in recovery of payments to which the practice was not entitled.
Existing practices participating in the eHealth Incentive will continue to be registered after 1 May 2016 and receive payments, but will need to meet all of the eHealth Incentive requirements unless they withdraw from the eHealth Incentive or opt out of a current payment quarter. Practices that opt out of a payment quarter will be automatically opted back into the following payment quarter. Failure to meet the new eHealth Incentive requirements applying from 1 May 2016 may result in recovery of payments to which the practice was not entitled.
