Children's Medicaid Loan Repayment Program

Authority for the Children’s Medicaid Loan Repayment Program was provided in Sections 19 and 20 of House Bill 15, 80th Legislature, Regular Session, 2007. The purpose of the program is to increase access to health care for Medicaid-enrolled beneficiaries under the age of 21 in Texas, by encouraging qualified primary care, specialty, and subspecialty physicians and dentists to participate in the Medicaid program.

The program has been suspended because no funding was authorized by the Texas Legislature for the current two-year state budget period, which ends on August 31, 2013. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board is working with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to complete the service verification and student loan repayment processes for providers who completed service periods through August 31, 2011.
