About getting paid and incurring costs

Are patients paid to participate?

Patients are not paid for participation in phase II, III and IV clinical trials. Only healthy volunteers participating in phase I (first testing) trials are sometimes paid.

Will I have to pay for anything?

The test drug or treatment in a clinical trial is free of charge. Costs you might need to consider are for travel (to and from the research site), childcare, lost income (if any) due to time away from work, etc. A clinical research coordinator can help you determine your costs over the full trial period and whether any are reimbursed.
