What to Consider in Billing

Last revised:

The signed Clinical Trial Agreement (CTA) or Contract dictates when and how UCSF may bill a sponsor. It is the source document for billing and takes precedence over any other communication or record. If an expense was not accounted for in the signed agreement, an amendment to the contract would need to be requested, negotiated and signed. Contact your RSC or ICD officer to begin the process.

Expenses related to your clinical trial budget must be treated consistently across all study documents and sources of payment (i.e. payors).  For example, if the sponsor agrees to cover the cost of Procedure A, then the Informed Consent must reflect this; it should not indicate that the patient or their insurance carrier will be responsible for the cost.
