Coverage Analysis

Through a partnership between UCSF Campus and Medical Center the Office of Clinical Research supports the research needs of clinical trial Investigators and staff.

Medicare Coverage Analysis

At UCSF we use a formal Coverage Analysis (CA) process to ensure compliant clinical research billing.  A CA is necessary for all clinical trials involving interventions in which any items and services are or may be invoiced to the patient insurer(s). Any clinical research on human subjects submitted to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) will be analyzed to determine whether a CA will be required. More information can be found on our Coverage Analysis page.
