FCC to Adopt Telehealth Program

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently made the decision to adopt a $200 million telehealth program that will help support health care providers and patients responding to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This $200 million was appropriated as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Through this COVID-19 Telehealth Program, the FCC will assist health care providers to purchase telecommunications, broadband connectivity, and devices necessary for providing telehealth services. The applications for funding submitted by health care providers will be processed on a rolling basis.
