Loan repayment programs offer tax-free funds for qualified health care providers working in approved disciplines at eligible practice sites, in exchange for a service obligation. Oregon practice sites can apply to participate in Loan Repayment programs by filling out a Site Application.
As of March 3, 2022 the Oregon Behavioral Health Loan Repayment Program (OBHLRP) is being administered by the Health Systems Division at the Oregon Health Authority. To learn more about the program requirements and how to apply, please visit the program's website or email the program staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
OBHLRP awards made on or before January 1, 2022 will continue to be administered by the Oregon Office of Rural Health (ORH). If your OBHLRP obligation start date is on or prior to January 1, 2022 and you have questions about your award please contact ORH at email@example.com.
Oregon Health Care Provider Incentive Loan Repayment was established by the Oregon Legislature to help support underserved communities in their recruitment and retention of high quality providers who serve patients regardless of their source of coverage (Medicaid, Medicare, private etc.) or ability to pay. In exchange for service at a qualifying practice site, participants receive funds to repay qualifying educational loan debt.
SLRP is an incentive for primary care providers working in Health Professional Shortage Areas.
Loan repayment programs not administered by the Office of Rural Health (ORH) may offer incentives to qualified providers working at qualified practice sites.
