FCC Seeks Comments on Proposal for Connected Care Pilot Program

The Federal Communications Commission recently agreed to seek comments for 30 days on creating a new $100 million Connected Care Pilot Program to support telehealth for low-income Americans, especially those living in rural areas and veterans. If established, the program would support the expansion of broadband and promote the use of broadband-enabled telehealth services among low-income families and veterans, with a focus on services delivered directly to patients beyond the doors of brick-and-mortar health care facilities. The FCC seeks input on the design of the pilot program, including factors such as the types of telehealth pilot projects that should be funded and eligibility criteria for participating health care providers, broadband service providers and low-income consumers.
