FCC Announces Application Filing Window for Round Two of COVID-19 Telehealth Program

On April 15, 2021, the FCC announced that on Thursday, April 29, 2021 at 12:00 PM ET it will begin accepting applications for the second round of its COVID-19 Telehealth Program (the “Program”).  The filing window will last for seven days and will close on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 12:00 PM ET.  All applications filed during this period will be reviewed after the application filing window has closed.

Under this application processing round, the FCC will distribute nearly $250 million to eligible health care providers to provide telehealth and connected care services to patients in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  This funding is in addition to the $200 million the FCC awarded to successful applicants in 2020 under round one of the Program.  Additional information on round one of the COVID-19 Telehealth Program can be viewed in our previous posts here and here.

Health care providers wishing to apply under round two of the Program should complete and submit an application on the FCC’s Program Webpage.  To ensure timely submission, interested providers should carefully review the  FCC’s Application Process Guidance, which is attached as Appendix C to the FCC’s March 30, 2021 Report and Order and Order On Reconsideration.  Specific questions about the application process can be submitted to Round2TelehealthApplicationSupport@usac.org.
