The Montana SLRP provides loan repayment funds for MD, DO, NP, PA, Certified Nurse Midwives, Dental and Mental Health Professionals working in Health Professional Shortage Areas.
The State Loan Repayment Programs has components similar to the federal NHSC loan repayment program. To be eligible for State Loan Repayment, the site and provider must be an NHSC-approved or –eligible site, enroll with federal and state programs (Medicaid, Medicare, SCHIP), post a sliding fee scale, and assure that providers are practicing full time (defined as 40 hours per week of patient care with no more than 8 hours devoted to practice-related administrative activities) or part-time – 20-39 hours per week.
