Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Tax Update

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Tax, also known as the Comparative Effectiveness Research Fee, is a fee paid to the government to fund Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) research.

One of the main goals of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is to foster a healthier population through improvements to the health care system. PPACA created a non-profit organization, the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), to conduct research that will result in more effective improvements.

Please view our updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) (PDF) for the latest PCORI information.
