Rural Citizens Access to Telehealth (RCAT) 

The Rural Citizens Access to Telehealth (RCAT) project is a partnership between the Missouri Telehealth Network and the Department of Social Services, MO HealthNet Division. They will provide funding, education, and training opportunities, to eligible partners, to introduce or enhance existing telehealth services for rural providers accepting Medicaid patients.
