You are eligible to receive the payment.
If you invoiced activity during the 2021- 22 Financial Year; the amount received will range between $300 and $3,000 (including superannuation where applicable) and is subject to applicable taxation requirements.The payment of up to $3,000; subject to pro rata is based on the invoiced activity, during the 2021- 22 Financial Year.
NSW Health has created a notional salary based on full time employment (2080 hours per year) so it can apply the same principles of payment which are being followed for all NSW Health employees. Selecting the GP VMO hourly rate to calculate the notional salary was deemed the most equitable approach.
You must have an active service contract on 1 July 2022 in order to be eligible to receive the payment.
VMOs are eligible if:
Eligible VMOs will receive one total payment only (maximum of $3000; regardless of how many engagements you hold). Invoiced activity for all VMO appointments will be combined.
In order to be paid; you must submit a vmoney claim for August 2022.
If you didn’t have any activity for August 2022- submit a NIL claim and HealthShare NSW will add one-off payment in the backend to process.The deadline for submission of August 2022 claims to receive the one off payment is 1 December 2022.
This will be dependent on when you submit your August 2022 vmoney claim; but payments are anticipated to commence during pay runs in September 2022.
Payment will be made to the account that your pay usually goes into; and you are unable to nominate an alternative account for the payment.
Payments will be subject to any applicable taxation requirements; which for VMOs may include GST depending on engagement arrangements.
