    Tuition Reimbursement for Mental Health Professionals in Texas

    The original bill was passed in 2015, but the legislature added marriage and family therapy in 2017.

    SECTION 3. Section 61.607(b), Education Code, is amended to
    read as follows:
    (b) The total amount of repayment assistance received by a
    mental health professional under this subchapter may not exceed:
    (1) $160,000, for assistance received by a licensed
    physician;
    (2) $80,000, for assistance received by:
    (A) a psychologist ;
    (B) a licensed clinical social worker, if the
    social worker has received a doctoral degree related to social
    work; [or]
    (C) a licensed professional counselor, if the
    counselor has received a doctoral degree related to counseling ; or
    (D) a licensed marriage and family therapist, if
    the marriage and family therapist has received a doctoral degree
    related to marriage and family therapy;
    (3) $60,000, for assistance received by an advanced
    practice registered nurse ; and
    (4) $40,000, for assistance received by a licensed
    clinical social worker, a licensed marriage and family therapist,
    or a licensed professional counselor who is not described by
    Subdivision (2).
    I didn't see the other stipulations while scanning the text of the bill, but you have to practice in an underserved county for five years to receive the maximum reimbursement. They prorate it by year. Most counties are underserved, so you won't have to move out into the boonies. And, the licensed physician has to be a psychiatrist; you can see the whole text below.

    Where I live it is specific to certain agencies as well. I have a friend who wrote off a lot of money by working in an agency that participates in this sort of program. She made a decent salary as well. The only (possible) downside . . . she had to work in this little town in the middle of nowhere (that's how I met her).

    I like little towns in the middle of nowhere.
