USAC distributes nearly $10 billion to make broadband services accessible and affordable through the Universal Service Fund programs. The Rural Health Care Program alone, for example, distributes nearly $400 million annually in discounts for telecommunications and broadband services necessary to power today’s telehealth and telemedicine services.
Rural health care providers rely on these services to save lives, improve patient experiences and outcomes, and maintain a modern standard of care in remote areas of the nation with few doctors and fewer specialists. But, with demand now exceeding the available funds, USAC compliance scrutiny has become more rigorous than ever before.
The Broadband Law Group can help avoid compliance problems that can jeopardize funding, minimize questions during USAC review, maximize funding commitments, and pursue appeals when applications are unsuccessful.
