Healthcare connect fund: healthcare providers get 65% off broadband services

Learn how your healthcare facility can benefit from USAC’s healthcare connect fund program

The Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) Healthcare Connect Fund provides funding to eligible healthcare providers (HCPs) to obtain broadband networks that serve rural and underserved communities.* Spectrum Enterprise offers a suite of eligible broadband services—and a team of dedicated Healthcare Connect Fund specialists—to help you navigate the program and support your goals to expand and improve the quality of healthcare for rural and underserved communities.

*Funding is provided to individual health care providers (HCPs) and consortia, which can include non-rural HCPs (if the consortium has a majority of rural sites).

What is the healthcare connect fund?

The Healthcare Connect Fund expands HCP access to broadband services and encourages the creation of state and regional broadband healthcare networks. These networks can be used for a variety of purposes—from transmitting electronic health records (EHRs), sending X-rays, MRIs, and CAT scans to a distant hospital—to videoconferencing for telemedicine or training. The program is administered by the Rural Healthcare Division of USAC.
