Demonstration Projects


These are federally funded efforts to test and evaluate care delivery, cost reduction, health improvement, and payment reform models. The goal of these projects is to develop new, effective methodologies for care and payment, which can be expanded to a broader, perhaps national, scope. The Affordable Care Act has several funded pilots dealing with innovations such as the bundled payment model and programs for chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries using home-based teams. Note that demonstration project opportunities have been ongoing for years and are not solely tied to recent legislation.
