The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released a brief announcement that it has extended the purchase and implementation deadline for funds received through its COVID-19 telehealth program.
The original deadline for funding recipients to purchase eligible devices and implement eligible services was September 30, 2020. The FCC has now extended this deadline to December 31, 2020. The FCC states it did so after receiving “multiple requests to extend the purchase/implementation deadline for the COVID-19 Program.”
While it has extended the purchase deadline, the FCC encourages recipients to purchase eligible devices and implement eligible services as soon as practicable.
