FCC Releases Report and Order 19-78: Promoting Telehealth in America

Stephen Burd - Friday, August 30, 2019

On August 20, 2019, the Federal Communications Commission released a Report and Order reforming the Rural Health Care (RHC) Program to promote transparency and predictability, and to further the efficient allocation of limited program resources while guarding against waste, fraud, and abuse. Read the Report and Order here.

While the Report and Order includes a number of changes to the RHC Program, the overall structure of the Program will remain the same. The RHC Program will still have two sub-programs: the Healthcare Connect Fund (HCF) Program and the Telecom Program. Applicants will still be required to seek eligibility, submit requests for funding, requests for services, and invoicing forms.

The changes initiated by the Report and Order will apply to Funding Year (FY) 2020 and beyond, and will not affect FY2019.
