What are PCORI’s sources of funding?

The only source of PCORI funding is the PCOR Trust Fund (PCORTF). There are three contributory sources to the PCORTF, none of which is considered agency-specific appropriation dollars:


  • Treasury’s general fund - contains some federal appropriations that are not tied to a specific agency.
  • The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) - transfers funds into the PCORTF from their Federal Hospital Insurance (FHI) Trust Fund and Federal Supplementary Medical Insurance (FSMI) Trust Fund.
  • The PCOR Fee – a portion of the PCOR fee assessed on private health insurance plans and self-insured plans, also supplements the PCORTF.
