The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation – RWJF

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) equipped the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) with a range of cost-cutting and quality-enhancing tools, the most significant of which might be its new Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center).

This summary paper provides a status report on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. The paper first defines the goals Congress envisioned for the Innovation Center and the new tools it was given, emphasizing how the enhanced authority compares with CMS’ traditional demonstration programs. Next, the paper outlines the Innovation Center’s organization and staffing, and how it sets priorities and decides on funding.
