Rural Health Care Program Training
Sunday, May 5
Austin Convention Center, Third Floor, Room 6A/B Pre-Registration Required
The Universal Service Fund’s Rural Health Care (RHC) Program has $400 million a year available to provide reduced rates for telecommunications services and broadband access for the provision of health care services in rural locations—including HIT and remote access to medical care. This full day presentation will focus on new developments in the RHC program, including the new Healthcare Connect Fund and the new online application management system, My Portal.
RHC staff will lead a comprehensive training on the Healthcare Connect Fund, including information about eligibility, program requirements, and the application process for individuals and consortia.
The presentation will also feature a demonstration of My Portal. RHC staff will explain how to register and log-in, explain how to navigate My Portal, and guide applicants and service providers through the process of filing forms and submitting invoices.
