Is there a cost to participate in clinical trials?

Before you enroll in a clinical trial, find out if any study-related expenses will be your responsibility. Insurance typically does not cover these.

Most clinical trial sponsors, however, pay the cost of new treatments that are under study. And in most cases, they pay for special tests, procedures or extra doctor visits that are part of the trial.

You may have additional travel and child care costs associated with these trial-related appointments. And you and your insurance will be responsible for costs associated with your standard cancer treatment.
