FAH recently commented on the FCC’s proposed changes for the Rural Health Care (RHC) Program, which provides funding to health care providers for broadband and telecommunications services. FAH urges the FCC to permit all qualified hospitals to participate in the RHC Program, regardless of ownership status. The letter emphasizes that many rural communities are served only by an investor-owned hospital and that segregating the RHC Program based on ownership status unfairly punishes the individuals and communities served by those facilities.
