Clinical Trials: Are They Expensive?
Transcript

Barbara: "Is joining a clinical trial expensive? Is it covered by insurance?" Dr. Theo: "Here's where it's really good news. In general, the entire cost of being on a study is paid for by the sponsor, meaning the pharmaceutical or biotech company that's manufacturing the drug. In general, if you ever come across a study where you're expected to pay, it's not a real clinical trial. Now, the one exception to the sponsor paying for all study-related costs is the following: let's assume you're in a clinical trial for Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis and you have some eye condition that occurs while you're on study. In general, your insurance would have to pay for this non study-related condition."
