On April 2, 2020, the FCC issued a Report and Order (FCC-20-44) establishing the COVID-19 Telehealth Program and adopting the Connected Care Pilot program. The COVID-19 Telehealth Program will provide $200 million in funding, appropriated by Congress as part of the CARES Act, to help health care providers provide connected care services to patients at their homes or mobile locations. The three-year Connected Care Pilot Program will provide universal service support to help defray certain health care provider costs incurred in delivering connected care services, with a primary focus on services aimed at low-income or veteran patients.

Join us on April 28 as we discuss the policy behind and the details of each program, including, healthcare provider eligibility criteria, funding coverage, and key application considerations for the COVID-19 Telehealth Program in particular.
