Primary Care Practice Opportunities
Share |

The Indiana Primary Health Care Association (IPHCA) works with local, state and national leaders to design and implement strategies for improving health care access for residents who live in underserved communities in Indiana. IPHCA helps connect primary medical, dental and mental health professionals to Community Health Centers (CHCs) within these underserved areas. CHCs provide patients with a medical home regardless of their ability to pay or insured status. Most sites qualify for loan repayment through the National Health Service Corps program and are eligible to sponsor J-1 Visa physicians.  


STATE ANNOUNCEMENT!                                                                                                                                                                  Posted 2/14/2019

Indiana State Loan Repayment Program

The Indiana Health Care Professional Recruitment and Retention Fund Program (IHCPRRF) provides loan repayment for student loans incurred by health care professionals to encourage the full-time delivery of health care in shortage areas. The IHCPRRF program provides an incentive for psychiatrists, alcohol, and substance use counselors and practitioners in related disciplines to practice in a specific, federally designated Indiana region experiencing high numbers of opioid deaths. The counties included are Blackford, Dearborn, Fayette, Franklin, Grant, Henry, Jay, Randolph, Switzerland, Union and Wayne. The program is administered by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) Division of Chronic Disease, Primary Care and Rural Health.


The project has grant opportunities for professional loan repayments to qualifying providers in mental health and addiction-related disciplines first, followed by primary care physicians, who are also in short supply. The plan calls for 30 awards of $20,000 for each year of the four-year grant period. An advisory committee, with the Family and Social Services Administration’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction and the Indiana Hospital Association as partners, will be formed to help with project development and grant awards by March. For more information please visit the SLRP website.
