Este programa aporta fondos para contratar y retener a los proveedores de atención primaria que trabajan en áreas donde hay escasez de profesionales médicos.“La amortización de préstamos es crucial para convocar y retener proveedores en las áreas con mayor necesidad de servicios de atención médica en nuestro estado”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Me complace poder poner fondos a disposición de aquellos profesionales comprometidos a prestar sus servicios donde más se necesitan”.“Consultar periódicamente a un proveedor médico es uno de los pasos más importantes que una persona puede dar para mejorar su salud”, dijo la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine. “Esta financiación nos ayuda a garantizar que quienes viven en áreas desatendidas tengan acceso a servicios médicos primarios, dentales y de la salud del comportamiento.

Por ejemplo, un área con escasez de proveedores que atienden a un grupo de población específico, como las personas de bajos ingresos, se identifica como HPSA.Los profesionales de atención primaria elegibles incluyen médicos (atención primaria y psiquiatras), dentistas generales, asistentes médicos profesionales, enfermeras profesionales certificadas, enfermeras parteras certificadas, higienistas dentales, psicólogos, trabajadores sociales clínicos habilitados, consejeros profesionales habilitados y terapeutas matrimoniales y familiares.La amortización de préstamos se ofrece a los profesionales médicos aprobados a cambio de dos años de servicio en un sitio de práctica de atención primaria aprobado.Para obtener más información sobre el programa de amortización de préstamos, visite el sitio de Internet del Departamento de Salud en www.health.pa.gov o síganos en Facebook y Twitter.View this information in English.
