Minimum practice income guarantee

Laptop, coffee and notepad

Since 2004, when the new General Medical Services (nGMS) contract was introduced, the Minimum Practice Income Guarantee (MPIG) has been used to top up the global sum payments for some practices. This has matched their basic income levels before the new contract. The payments made under MPIG are called correction factor payments.

As part of the GP contract settlement in 2013, the Department of Health decided to phase out MPIG top-up payments over a seven year period, starting in the financial year 2014/15 which means it will be phased out by 2021/2022.
