Through the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Act”), the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (“Institute”) was created to promote research to advance the quality of evidence-based medicine. The Institute is funded through the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Trust Fund, which is financed, in part, by fees paid by plan sponsors of applicable self-insured health plans and issuers of specified health insurance policies. For the first year of applicability, the fee is $1 per covered life and increases for later years.
The first deadline for payment of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) fee is July 31, 2013.
