CHI Health’s Loan Forgiveness Program is intended to help recent graduates in hard-to-recruit jobs by providing assistance with repayment of student loans.

Eligible employees must be employed by CHI Health. Employees must have received a degree required for the eligible job within the five years preceding their hire date. A list of jobs currently eligible is shown below. Employees must be working in jobs with a 0.8 or greater FTE (i.e., they work, on average, at least 4 days per week).

Employees must submit current documentation of their outstanding loan balance, along with an Application for the Loan Forgiveness Program, to HR. Loans must be from an agency or corporation engaged in the business of student loans, and the employee must be personally responsible for repayment.

Payments will be made for up to five years, or until the loan is fully paid, whichever occurs first. To remain eligible, employees must remain in the eligible job and FTE status.
