FCC Announces Wind Down of COVID-19 Telehealth Program
The Federal Communications Commission's Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) and Office of the Managing Director offer guidance to participants in the COVID-19 Telehealth Program on the expected expiration of the National Emergency and Public Health Emergency on May 11, 2023. Pursuant to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, all payments from health care providers to vendors must be completed and all supported services must be received before the emergency period ends. The deadline to purchase and implement services supported by the COVID-19 Telehealth Program has already passed, so the expiration of the emergency period will not impact this deadline. For most awardees, the deadline to purchase services was October 31, 2022. All equipment supported by the Program must be delivered by May 11, 2023, and all recurring services must be received by May 11, 2023.
