Method of Primary Care Incentive Payment (PCIP)


Calculate and pay qualifying primary care practitioners an additional 10 percent incentive payment.

Calculate the payment based on the amount actually paid for the services, not the Medicare approved amount.

Combine the PCIP incentive payments, when appropriate, with other incentive payments, including the HPSA physician bonus payment, and the HPSA Surgical Incentive Payment Program (HSIP) payment;

Provide a special remittance form that is forwarded with the incentive payment so that physicians and practitioners can identify which type of incentive payment (HPSA physician and/or PCIP) was paid for which services.

Practitioners should contact their contractor with any questions regarding PCIP payments.
