The NHSC Jobs Center includes sites that are approved for service by NHSC scholars; however, entities on this list may or may not have current job vacancies. Eligible HPSAs and Entities To be eligible to receive assignment of Corps members, entities must: (1) Have a current HPSA status of ‘‘designated’’ by the Division of Policy and Shortage Designation, Bureau of Health Workforce, HRSA as of January 1, 2015, for placements October 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015, or as of January 1, 2016, for placements January 1, 2016, through September 30, 2016; (2) not deny requested health care services or discriminate in the provision of services to an individual because the individual is unable to pay for the services or because payment for the services would be made under Medicare, Medicaid, or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP); (3) enter into an agreement with the state agency that administers Medicaid and CHIP, accept assignment under Medicare, see all patients regardless of their ability to pay and post such policy, and use and post a discounted fee plan; and (4) be determined by the Secretary to have (a) a need and demand for health manpower in the area; (b) appropriately and efficiently used Corps members assigned to the entity in the past; (c) general community support for the assignment of Corps members; (d) made unsuccessful efforts to recruit health professionals; (e) a reasonable prospect for sound fiscal management by the entity with respect to Corps members assigned there; and (f) demonstrated a willingness to support and facilitate mentorship, professional development, and training opportunities for Corps members. Priority in approving applications for assignment of Corps members goes to sites that (1) provide primary medical care, mental health, and/or oral health services that matches the discipline to a primary medical care, mental health, or dental HPSA of greatest shortage, respectively; (2) are part of a system of care that provides a continuum of services, including comprehensive primary health care and appropriate referrals (e.g. ancillary, inpatient, and specialty referrals) or arrangements for PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 26569 secondary and tertiary care; (3) have a documented record of sound fiscal management; (4) will experience a negative impact on the capacity to provide primary health services if a Corps member is not assigned to the entity, and (5) are a nonprofit or public entity to which Corps members may be assigned. Sites that provide specialized care, or a limited set of services, will receive greater scrutiny and may not receive approval as NHSC service sites. This may include clinics that focus on one disease or disorder or offer limited services, such as a clinic that only provides immunizations or a substance abuse clinic. Entities at which NHSC scholars are performing their service obligations must assure that (1) the position will permit the full scope of practice and that the clinician meets the credentialing requirements of the state and site; and (2) the NHSC scholar assigned to the entity is engaged in the requisite amount of clinical practice, as defined below, to meet his or her service obligation: Full-Time Clinical Practice ‘‘Full-time clinical practice’’ is defined as a minimum of 40 hours per week for at least 45 weeks per service year. The 40 hours per week may be compressed into no less than 4 work days per week, with no more than 12 hours of work to be performed in any 24-hour period. Time spent on-call does not count toward the full-time service obligation, except to the extent the provider is directly treating patients during that period. For all health professionals, except as noted below, at least 32 of the minimum 40 hours per week must be spent providing direct patient care in the outpatient ambulatory care setting(s) at the NHSC-approved service site(s) during normally scheduled office hours. The remaining 8 hours per week must be spent providing direct patient care for patients at the approved practice site(s), providing direct patient care in alternative settings as directed by the approved practice site(s), or performing practice-related administrative activities. Teaching activities at the approved service site shall not exceed 8 hours of the minimum 40 hours per week, unless the teaching takes place in a HRSAfunded Teaching Health Center (see Section 340H of the Public Health Service Act, 42 U.S.C. Section 256h). Teaching activities in a HRSA-funded Teaching Health Center shall not exceed 20 hours of the minimum 40 hours per week. E:\FR\FM\08MYN1.SGM 08MYN1
