The Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) is mandated by Section 4106 of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 to test care coordination programs to improve the care of beneficiaries with chronic illnesses and reduce costs to the Medicare program in the fee-for-service sector.
The demonstration must be modeled on currently functioning best practices in care coordination. HCFA has contracted with Mathematica Policy Research in Princeton, NJ, to conduct the search for best practices and design the demonstration project.
