Clinical research studies

For certain qualifying clinical research studies, Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance)  and/or  Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)  cover some costs, like office visits and tests.

Your costs in Original Medicare

You may pay 20% of the  Medicare-Approved Amount , depending on the treatment you get. The Part B  deductible  may apply.

What it is

Clinical research studies test different types of medical care, including new treatments, to find out how well they work and if they’re safe. For example, a clinical research study might test how well a new cancer drug works. Clinical research studies may involve diagnostic tests, surgical treatments, medicine, or new types of patient care.
