  • The Biden administration has benchmarked more than $19 million in grants to expand telehealth in rural and underserved communities, which have continued to lack access to care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The investments will provide funding to train primary care providers, bolster groups providing virtual care, pilot new telehealth services and research the efficacy of digitally delivered care in rural geographies.
