FCC's COVID-19 Telehealth Program Application Portal Opens Today

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai recently announced his plan for a COVID-19 Telehealth Program to support health care providers responding to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As part of the CARES Act, Congress appropriated $200 million to the FCC to support health care providers’ use of telehealth services in combating the COVID-19 pandemic.

It has come to our attention that the Federal Communications Commission has officially announced that it will begin accepting applications for funding through the COVID-19 Telehealth Program beginning on Monday, April 13, 2020 at 12:00 PM. These funds will help healthcare providers purchase the connectivity and devices they need to care for patients remotely in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Applications can be filed using an online process by clicking here.
