PCORI is unable to cover the cost of interventions including compensation for salary and time for personnel delivering interventions, as well as equipment/hearing devices and other material costs associated with intervention delivery. This includes costs for clinical services such as hearing tests and hearing aid fitting. PCORI encourages investigators to find support from sites, payers, stakeholders, etc. in the payment or cost sharing of interventions or devices. Investigators may also consider a prospective observational study design, if it is appropriate for the research question.
