State Releases Information on Primary Care Loan Repayment Program

Part of Governor Corbett’s Healthy Pennsylvania health care reform plan, introduced in the fall of 2013, was a program to help primary care providers pay off their education loans in exchange for a commitment to provide care in facilities that serve predominantly underserved communities and low-income patients.

Now, the state has released further information about the program, including what kinds of providers are eligible for assistance, how they may apply to participate, and how the facilities in which they work can be certified for eligibility.  Also available are application materials.

The deadline for primary care providers to apply is December 4.

Find a fact sheet about the program here and more information about the application process here.
