Once approved to participate
in the LRP, providers are required to work a minimum of two years
(maximum of four years) on a full-time basis (40 hours per week),
providing primary care in an eligible underserved area at an approved
LRP placement site. Hours worked prior to acceptance to the LRP
cannot be used toward LRP service obligation.
Participants serve a six-month
probationary period upon initial placement at an approved LRP site.
Financial penalties will be
applied to participants seeking to terminate the LRP contract prior
to completing the initial two-year commitment.
