Other Care Models


Under the Affordable Care Act, Congress created the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) with the authority and direction to "test innovative payment and service delivery models to reduce program expenditures, while preserving or enhancing the quality of care" for those who get Medicare, Medicaid or CHIP benefits.

CMMI's mandate gives it great flexibility in selecting and testing innovative payment and service delivery models and enables the center to work with programs to better serve beneficiaries.

The CMMI is part of a broader effort by CMS and other federal agencies to support and help clinicians and other health care providers deliver higher quality care. With the help of the CMMI, CMS is working to transform our fragmented fee for service healthcare system into a system that provides seamless, coordinated care for beneficiaries that will ultimately improve quality and reduce costs.
