Eligibility in a given year does not guarantee eligibility in any other year, nor does it guarantee that the program will not be subject to change prior to participants completing all years of service and receiving payment for any of those years under RPIP.
Payment of the incentive may be made to qualifying physicians at the end of each year of practice according to the following breakdown:
|Year 1||Year 2||Year 3||Year 4||Year 5|
Adjudication of the program will be made by saskdocs.
