Indiana panel OKs bill on doctor reimbursements

Indianapolis Star, March 11, 2009

New doctors who choose enter lower-paying primary-care positions may get a small gift from Indiana lawmakers under a bill that proposes up to $5,000 a year in loan reimbursement. The bill's author, Sen. Vi Simpson, D-Bloomington, acknowledged the amount was small compared to the average medical school debt, but she hoped it would entice some graduates to practice in Indiana once they finish school.
