The rules of federal and private payers govern the conditions under which clinical services associated with a research study can be billed to study subjects or their insurers.  The complexity of the various rules require that investigators, administrators, and staff work collaboratively to ensure that costs associated with clinical studies are billed in compliance with relevant rules and regulations.

The UAB Compliance Office monitors post award research related clinical trial billing by performing routine and targeted billing reviews.  In addition to performing detailed reviews of individual clinical trials, we also monitor specific research driven charge codes to ensure billing compliance.
