Location/Rural Areas/April 1st

April 1st is quickly approaching and i've yet to see any solutions provided by DMAS as to what providers are supposed to do in scenarios of patients living in very rural areas, the location not always being able to be captured due to this (and yes the app has offline capability-the patient just lives in a very rural area) and the patient not having a landline phone in order to use telephony. Did DMAS plan for these events?
