The County Medical Services Program (CMSP) in partnership with the State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) has opened a special application cycle to help primary care health professionals with the repayment of qualified educational loans.
Grant recipients can receive up to $50,000 and must commit to two-year, full-time or four-year, half-time service agreement to provide direct patient care in one of the 35 participating CMSP counties. Unlike the general SLRP, CMSP contracted practice sites are not required to match the provider award amount.
The application cycle opened on January 30, 2018, and will close on March 30, 2018. Interested parties can apply online through CalREACH.
All participating practice sites must have a fully executed contract with the County Medical Services Program Governing Board by March 16, 2018. Providers seeking to become a contracting CMSP provider should contact Krystal Melgoza at (562) 766-2000 x 222 or firstname.lastname@example.org at Advanced Medical Management, CMSP’s Third Party Administrator.
