Routine Patient Care Activities in Clinical Trials & Use of Research Order Form (ROF)
Here are a few important reminders about routine patient care activities in clinical trial studies and use of our Research Order Form (ROF):
- Tests and procedures included in the sponsor’s protocol does not automatically make routine patient care costs billable to the sponsor/study; Medicare Coverage Analysis and negotiations with the sponsor determine such billing arrangements;
- Research Order Forms (ROFs) are required for routine patient care and research procedure and lab services conducted under a clinical trial;
- Always refer to the Medicare Coverage Analysis document along with the ROF to confirm budget and billing requirements; these documents can be found within TRUE; and
- Always check True to ensure that the most current ROF is utilized to help avoid potential billing discrepancies.
