As the need for healthcare providers in certain areas continues to grow, the Senate passed legislation that would provide incentives in the hopes of increasing access. Introduced by Senator Curt VanderWall (R-Ludington), if a health provider agrees to a term of service of 10 years or more in a health resource shortage area, the maximum amount of debt or expense repayment the Department of Health and Human Services may pay on behalf of the provider would be increased from $200,000 to $250,000, paid over a period of ten years or more. The legislation has been referred to the House Health Policy Committee for consideration.
