Fees are determined both by protocol categorization and by the Level of Care your research patient receives at the CTRC. Protocols are categorized by the experience level of the investigator and by whether the protocol is investigator initiated or industry initiated.
The level of care is determined by the number and type of services provided by the CTRC nursing and medical support staff as well as the equipment and supplies utilized. The level of care can be determined using the Level of Care Worksheet. Protocol categorization and level of care each play a unique and integral role in determining fees. It is important that you read and understand both sections in order to prepare accurate budgets for a research study.
In addition, we have provided fee information for inpatient services as well as research on location and mobile fees. For questions or further explanation of how charges are determined, please contact Janette Goins or call 919.843.1070.
