Colorado’s State Loan Repayment Program
Did you know Colorado offers one of the largest state loan repayment programs in the country? The Colorado Health Service Corps (CHSC) offers up to $90,000 in loan repayment for qualifying providers in exchange for a 3 year service commitment at an approved clinic. There are currently 376 CHSC-approved clinics where primary care medical, dental and behavioral health care providers can practice to qualify for this program! Need assistance navigating the CHSC program? Contact your 3RNet Colorado member for questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
New State Legislation
New Colorado state legislation via HB 16-1142 provides a $1,000 tax credit for primary care medical and dental provider preceptors who are working in a rural or frontier county! Click here for more details, and visit the Colorado Rural Health Center’s website for more information on the process of claiming the tax credit.
Also, as of 2015, the hourly requirements for APRNs to obtain full prescriptive authority have been reduced from 3600 to 1000 hours. Learn more about this here.
