Quick Access


Medical providers who begin providing or expand opioid addiction treatment are now eligible for student loan repayment through a new Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) program. The goal of the Michigan Opioid Treatment Assistance (MIOTA) Loan Repayment Program is to increase availability of opioid use disorder treatment across the state, especially in areas where treatment is difficult to access.

MDHHS received a $500,000 grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund to implement the Michigan Opioid Treatment Access Loan Repayment Program to repay medical education loans.

The program is available to medical doctors and osteopathic medicine doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and substance use disorder counselors who begin offering opioid treatment or expand treatment that is already being offered. Providers who work in a variety of health care settings are eligible to apply. The program has a two-year service obligation.

The application cycle begins on June 1, 2019 and close on June 30, 2019. For more information see attached press release.
