Report: NHSC approves fewer requests for leniency from health care workers in student debt forgiveness program

The NHSC in 2020 granted 47% of requests for waivers to terminate the contract obligations

The Wall Street Journal reported that the National Health Service Corps approved fewer requests from health care workers for a temporary suspension of contracts linked to student debt forgiveness after the COVID-19 pandemic began, even though requests for suspension more than doubled from fiscal 2019 to 2020. The agency approved 85% of suspension requests in fiscal 2021 and 84% in 2020, compared with about 87% in 2017 to 2019. The NHSC in 2020 granted 47% of requests for waivers to terminate the contract obligations, compared with 52% in 2019. The Health Resources and Services Administration said the NHSC approved all suspension requests linked to the pandemic and most of those people have returned to service.
