The 2015 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program application cycle is now open and will close on March 30, 2015 at 7:30 PM EST.

This Program provides loan repayment assistance to licensed primary care medical, dental, and mental and behavioral health providers who serve in communities with limited access to health care. There are both full-time and half-time service options.

The 2015 application cycle is expected to be competitive. On average, it can take up to three weeks to complete an application so applicants are encouraged to apply early. This year the process may improve for applicants, now that some loan information can be automatically populated by the National Student Loan Data System.

Available resources include the Application and Program Guidance and instructions on how to apply.

Technical Assistance provided by NHSC program staff is available during the following dates:

Veterans Choice Act: What Health Centers Need to Know

In the summer of 2014, the Veterans Choice Act was signed into law by the President--and it is changing how Veterans may be able to obtain health care in their local communities. It has also opened the door for health centers to serve more Veterans in those communities. 

Information is being shared now with Veterans and with providers about the implementation of this legislation.  The VA serves a broad population and offers many different services.  The Veterans Choice Act has some complex rules and procedures. This Fact Sheet (the 2nd that NACHC has issued) tries to simplify some of the complexity by providing health centers, networks and PCAs with current information about the Veterans Choice Act.
