My study involves Medicare or third party support
Your research may incorporate financial support from third parties. NHLBI has issued guidance on Third Party Involvement in NHLBI-Sponsored Clinical Trials and other Population-Based Studies. It is important to discuss your plans to partner with a third party with your Program Director before your study begins in order to obtain proper approval from NHLBI, if necessary.
Medicare Coverage of Clinical Trials will give you information about the CMS policy on what Medicare will pay for during a clinical trial and how this might be accomplished.
