HECS/HELP Does your facility qualify for the HECS/HELP Reimbursement Scheme?

The HECS Reimbursement Scheme started in 2001. It aims to promote careers in rural medicine and increase the number of doctors in rural and regional areas, through the reimbursement of HECS-HELP fees for standard Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) at Australian universities.

Through the scheme, communities have improved access to health services as more doctors move to work in rural areas.

Participants in the scheme have a proportion of their standard CSP HECS-HELP fees (incurred for medical studies) reimbursed for each year of medical service or training undertaken provided in rural and remote areas of Australia.

Payments under the scheme are scaled according to the remoteness of practice or training locations. This means participants in the most remote locations can have their standard CSP HECSHELP fees reimbursed in as little as 2 years. The Australian Standard Geographical Classification – Remoteness Areas system (ASGC-RA) is used to define eligible areas. ASGC-RA 2-5 locations are eligible for the HECS Reimbursement Scheme. The initial 12 month period must be undertaken continuously in an RA 2-5 location.

To be eligible, graduates must meet ALL criteria listed below:

• be an Australian citizen or hold an Australian permanent resident visa;

• through a CSP have completed an accredited Australian medical course, leading to the award of a Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery degree (MBBS) or equivalent;

• have completed their final year of study and obtained their medical degree in the last six years (noting that the initial application must be received within this time frame);

• have provided medical services or undertaken continuous training as defined by the Health Insurance ACT 1973 in an eligible RA 2-5 location, and

• have been a CSP student that incurred a HECS-HELP debt.

If you require further information regarding any aspect of the HECS Reimbursement Scheme, please visit http://www.ruralhealthaustralia.gov.au/internet/rha/publishing.nsf/Content/HECS_Reimbursement_Scheme or contact Medicare Australia on 1800 010 550.
