Understanding & Maximising Practice PCRS Income

Due to expected ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and for the convenience of attending participants, Alpha is delighted to offer a 100% virtual training course. The course will be fully interactive and mirrors our highly successful courses that normally take place in various venues around the country. We will provide the same material and content as previous face to face course training and all attendees will receive the training material electronically. A link to access the course and full instructions will be issued prior to the date. For those unfamiliar with Zoom, we also offer a quick pre run to make sure you have full access on the day of the course.

2020 has been a particularly challenging and has left little time for practices to fully analyse their PCRS income to see if you are getting your full entitlement from the PCRS? Yet doing so, can make a real impact on the financial performance of your practice. With so many recent changes to the income streams to keep track of, it is easy to under-perform in areas such as STCs, practice support subsidies, leave entitlements, correctly categorizing your patients, immunization programs and so on. Add to that the Under 6s, chronic disease management and the recent COVID-19 payments and you see how important it is to fully analyse your income.

This course is designed for anyone responsible for managing PCRS claims and subsidies within the practice. It will give participants an in-depth understanding of all PCRS income sources and the rules and regulations around PCRS claims. Alpha’s PCRS monitoring tool will be used to show participants how to track, monitor and maximise the practice’s PCRS income. So for just one afternoon out, you will learn the skills needed to make sure that your practice is receiving all its entitled to and manage your PCRS income into the future.
