Rapidly Changing Student Loan Programs and Their Impact on Healthcare Systems

Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2023  |  1:00 p.m. CT (2:00 p.m. ET)

As student debt levels for healthcare professionals continue to rise, so do their expectations that their employers should do something to ease the burden. There have been several developments in the student loan marketplace that employers should be aware of, including The CARES Act payment halt expiration, broad student loan cancellation, changes to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, and the introduction of a completely new Income Driven Repayment Plan. During this webinar, we will cover each of these changes in detail and will discuss what loan repayment assistance is provided in today’s marketplace.


  1. Learn the recent changes made to the PSLF program, their economic impact on staff and best practices for the PLSF form (formerly ECF) process.
  2. Understand the newest income driven repayment plan and how it particularly benefits nurses and administrative staff.
  3. Identify tax savings made available to both staff and your organization through the CARES Act expansion of Section 127.
