The Affordable Care Act (ACA) imposed fees on health insurers and health plan sponsors in order to fund a private, nonprofit corporation known as the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). PCORI funds research aimed at assisting patients, clinicians, purchasers, and policy-makers to make better informed health decisions. An article featured on the Kaiser Health News (KHN) website provides some details about a $30 million grant from PCORI and the National Institute of Health that will fund a study on falls in older adults.
