MHA Comments on Telecommunications/ Broadband Rules for Rural Hospitals

The MHA submitted a comment letter April 14 on behalf of its rural hospital members to the Federal Communications Commission in response to its request for input on proposed rulemaking to improve the Rural Health Care (RHC) Program.

The RHC Program provides funding to healthcare providers for telecommunications and broadband services necessary to provide healthcare services. Given the advancement in technology in recent years, the RHC Program is critical for expanding access to broadband services. Members with questions should contact Lauren LaPine at the MHA.
