This is E-supplement to GAO-11-27. It provides information on participation in the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Rural Health Care Pilot Program - a program worth roughly $418 million funded through the Universal Service Fund - which provides funding to selected pilot projects for designing and installing regional and state broadband networks that serve rural health care providers, as well as the costs of advanced telecommunications and information services that ride over those networks. This e-supplement includes the questions asked and a summary of the answers given in a survey we conducted of representatives from projects participating in the Rural Health Care Pilot Program.
