VCU Clinical Research Coverage Analysis

The VCU Coverage Analysis process begins with a screening form to determine/document if any billable clinical services are included in the clinical research activity. If billable clinical services are included, the process also includes:

  1. a brief review of the study to determine if the study is qualified for secondary payer coverage of clinical services and
  2. a billing plan to identify clinical services by payer (supporting both study financial management and billing compliance).

In accordance with VCU Compliance Notice 16-002 Clinical Research Coverage Analysis, requisite forms must be reviewed and approved by an Institutionally‐designated Coverage Analysis Specialist (within your school or center and also available via VCU Clinical Research Services).
