Clinical Research Studies
What is it?
Clinical research studies or clinical trials test how well different types of medical care work and if they’re safe, such as how well a cancer drug works. Clinical research studies may involve diagnostic tests, surgical treatments, medicine, or new types of patient care. They may:
- Study how well new treatments and tests benefit patients
- Compare different treatments for the same condition to see which treatment is better
- Study new ways to use existing treatments
What are my costs?
Depending on the treatment you receive you may pay 20% of the Medicare-approved as well as the Part B deductible.
