Last night, Reps Jo Ann Emerson (MO-R) and Mike Ross (AR-D) introduced the Physical Therapist Student Loan Repayment Eligibility Act (HR 1426), legislation that would authorize PTs to participate in the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment Program. The federal program provides up to $30,000 in loan forgiveness per year for 2 years of service in an underserved area.
The US Senate is expected to introduce companion legislation to HR 1426 soon.
