Extended Public Comment Period for FCC’s COVID-19 Telehealth Program

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continues to seek public comment on the metrics that should be used to evaluate applications for Round 2 of the COVID-19 Telehealth Program and how the FCC should treat applications filed during initial funding rounds.  In January, the FCC announced an additional $250 million for the program that was established in April 2020 and set a deadline of January 19 for comments.  That deadline has been lifted and the FCC will continue to accept comments at any time.
