Accelerated Benefits Demonstration Project—0960–NEW. The Accelerated Benefits Demonstration Project is a multi-phase study designed to assess whether providing new SSDI beneficiaries with health benefits and employment supports will stabilize or improve their health and help them return to work early. In this long-term study, new SSDI disability recipients (i.e., those who have just begun receiving benefits and who have at least 18 months remaining before they qualify for Medicare) will be divided into three groups: (1) A control group that will just receive their regular SSDI benefits; (2) a treatment group that will receive immediate access to health care benefits; and (3) a treatment group that will receive health care benefits and additional care management, employment, and benefits services and support. The study, which will be conducted for SSA by research contractors and health care experts, will assess whether health benefits alone or health benefits with additional support services improve the health and employment outcomes of new SSDI beneficiaries. The respondents are beneficiaries who have just begun receiving SSDI disability benefits and are not yet eligible for Medicare health benefits.
