The Federal Communications Commission today released a final rule summarizing guidance adopted last month for participants in its $100 million Connected Care Pilot Program, including eligible services, competitive bidding, invoicing and data reporting. The rule takes effect 30 days after publication in tomorrow’s Federal Register. 

The FCC last month approved 36 additional pilot projects for the program, created in 2019 to support telehealth for low-income Americans, including those in rural areas. The new projects join 23 projects approved earlier this year for a total of $57 million in funding.
