PCORI prefers that the costs of clinical care, including such personnel costs, be covered by usual coverage practices. PCORI will cover personnel costs for administering informed consent and collecting data and other research-related costs. In special circumstances, the application’s Research Plan may explain how stakeholders, including payers, would consider covering the costs of these additional personnel should the interventions be found to be comparatively effective. In such cases, PCORI may consider covering these personnel costs in the study.
