About CCPI

MISSION Act Section 152

Section 152 of the MISSION Act of 2018 authorized the creation of the Center for Care and Payment Innovation (CCPI). The VA Secretary, acting through the Center, may carry out pilot programs that develop innovative approaches to testing payment and service delivery models, which reduce expenditures while preserving or enhancing the quality of care furnished by VA.

Subject to congressional approval and congressional reporting, the VA Secretary may waive statutes that govern Veterans’ benefits related to hospital, nursing home, domiciliary, and medical care in order to develop these innovative approaches. CCPI operates organizationally out of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Discovery, Education, and Affiliate Networks (DEAN), Office of Healthcare Innovation and Learning (OHIL).
