Demonstration Projects and Evaluation Reports
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).
Solicitations Period Closed/Ongoing Demonstrations - We are no longer taking applications; they are in various stages of implementation.

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.
