PCORI will consider covering costs for ancillary tasks necessary in the implementation or monitoring of a clinical intervention or strategy as part of the research program. Examples include costs for obtaining consent, collecting data, or monitoring that would not normally be performed in routine care. Support for the study by the involved healthcare delivery systems must be documented. PCORI may allow for the coverage of co-payments or co-insurance, or allow for other appropriate measures to the extent that such coverage or other measures are necessary to preserve the validity of a research project, such as in the case where the research project must be blinded. Please refer to PCORI’s policy regarding allowable and unallowable costs in Appendix 2 of the Application Guidelines.
