Demonstration Projects and Evaluation Reports

Demonstration Projects:

CMS conducts and sponsors a number of innovative demonstration projects to test and measure the effect of potential program changes. Our demonstrations study the likely impact of new methods of service delivery, coverage of new types of service, and new payment approaches on beneficiaries, providers, health plans, states, and the Medicare Trust Funds. Evaluation projects validate our research and demonstration findings and help us monitor the effectiveness of Medicare, Medicaid, and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).

Additional Demonstrations – Active Projects Database

We have summaries of additional demonstration projects in our Active Projects Report: Research and Demonstrations in Health Care Financing (APR). The APR is an annual publication that inventories both intramural projects conducted by CMS staff and extramural projects conducted, with CMS support, by contractors, grantees, and other awardees. The APR presents a brief description of each project, including its identification number, project title, awardee, funding, and the period of performance. The current edition of the APR can be accessed here.
