Area(s) of Interest: Physician Workforce Access to Care
The 2020 application cycle for the CalHealthCares loan repayment program is approaching. The program—which aims to increase access to care for California’s 13 million Medi-Cal patients—will award $340 million in loan repayments to encourage and incentivize physicians to provide care to Medi-Cal beneficiaries. The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has contracted with Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC) to administer this program.
CalHealthCares has approximately $58.6 million for physicians in this application cycle. Physician awardees can receive loan repayments of up to $300,000 in exchange for a five-year service obligation.
To answer any questions about the applications process, PHC is hosting several webinars that will provide an overview of the CalHealthCares requirements, deadlines and the application. Register for your choice of dates today.
Applications will be accepted from January 13 to February 7, 2020. Please visit CalHealthCares.org for more information.
