WCB Updates List of Rural Areas Used to Determine RHC Eligibility


The FCC’s Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureau) has updated the list of rural areas used to determine eligibility in the Rural Health Care (RHC) Program to reflect the results of the 2020 decennial U.S. census.  In order to ease the transition, the Bureau has granted a waiver for funding year 2025 to allow health care providers whose status has changed from rural to urban to continue to participate in the RHC Program as if they were rural health care providers.
