Cost of Participation

Cost of Participation

The research costs associated with a clinical trial, including data collection and analysis, health care professionals who work on the research project, and tests performed for research purposes are paid by the research sponsor.

Other costs for medical goods and services, including doctors’ professional fees, hospital stays, laboratory tests, and medical imaging made necessary by your medical condition independent of your participation in the clinical trial, are often not covered by the research sponsor. Third-party health insurance may pay for some or all of these costs, but their obligation to do so varies among insurance plans. Be aware that health care delivered in the context of a clinical trial will most often be considered “investigational.” Investigational therapies are often excluded from coverage under medical plans. You should discuss the financial aspects of your participation in a clinical trial with both your physician and with a representative of your insurance plan.
