Practice Option Application
This PPO application initiates a request for a NHSC clinician
to open their own private practice or one who is interested in
working at an existing private practice. Just by submitting a
PPO application does not allow a physician to be approved for
the private practice option. Approvals of all PPO applications
will be sent in writing from the In-Service Support Branch. In
addition to filling out the PPO application, additional documentation
will be required. See documentation
requirements for private practice options.
