Submission: rural and remote area HELP debt incentives: letter to Minister

Letter to Minister for Regional Health asking for allied health practitioners to be included in the Federal Government's plan to offer Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) debt incentives scheme

In December 2021, the Federal Government announced it would provide an incentive for eligible doctors and nurse practitioners to practice in rural, remote or very remote areas of Australia, by eliminating all or part of their Higher Education Loan Programme (HELP) debt. Osteopathy Australia CEO wrote to the Minister for Regional Health arguing that osteopaths and other allied health practitioners should also be included in this scheme to boost the rural and regional health workforce.
