A statutorily mandated evaluation of the new program’s cost-effectiveness and medical necessity is being conducted by UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. The evaluation will examine financial, clinical and humanistic outcomes, as well as the quality assurance data and operational factors. This evaluation will take place over four years coinciding with the first three years of program operation and then for one additional year to gather and analyze the data. A report will be produced for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services who approved and oversee the waiver on the federal level.
