Dear Colleagues – we are excited to announce the CalHealthCares loan repayment program! Also known as the Proposition 56 Medi-Cal Physicians and Dentists Loan Repayment Act Program, CalHealthCares will award $220 million in loan repayments to recently graduated physicians and dentists over the next five years to encourage and incentivize providers to provide care to Medi-Cal beneficiaries.
CalHealthCares will award approximately 125 physicians and 20 dentists a loan repayment of up to $300,000 in exchange for a five-year service obligation. Qualifying dentists can also apply for a practice support grant in exchange for a ten-year service obligation.
The application will be released Monday, April 1, 2019 and the deadline is Friday, April 26, 2019. We will be conducting webinars starting next week so that applicants may receive detailed information and live-chat with our staff to respond to their individual questions.
