Congress Extends ACA’s Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute Fee for 10 Years

The ACA requires health insurance issuers and self-funded health plans to finance the statute’s Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). The statute required those entities to pay an annual fee through 2019. In Section 104 of Division N of H.R. 1865, enacted as Pub. L. No. 115-04, Congress extended the PCORI funding period through 2029.
