Step 9 Submit Annual Report

The consortium leader must submit an annual report to USAC, which will include information that allows the FCC to assess progress towards the performance goals and measures of the Healthcare Connect Fund (HCF) Program. The annual report must be filed by the consortium leader on or before September 30 for the preceding funding year.

FY2015 Annual Reporting Requirement

For Funding Year (FY) 2015, to supplement the information collected from forms filed by consortia, the FCC requires HCF consortia to submit information to USAC about the telehealth applications used during the funding year. HCF consortia must submit this additional data to USAC using this Excel template and emailed to by September 30, 2016. Template file names should include the HCF consortium name and number.

HCF Program consortia that also applied for Pilot Program funding should use the Pilot Program annual report template to submit their annual report information for the Pilot Program.

Past Annual Reporting Requirements

For FY2014, all necessary annual report information was collected by USAC and the FCC using data from forms filed by HCF and Pilot Program consortia; thus, the consortia were not required to re-submit this data. For more information on the FY2014 annual reporting requirements for HCF and Pilot Program consortia, see Public Notice (DA 15-1005).

For FY2013, the FCC waived the annual reporting requirement for all HCF and Pilot Program consortia. For more information on the FY2013 annual reporting requirements for HCF and Pilot Program consortia, see Order, DA 14-854.
