PCORI encourages applicants to maximize patient care cost coverage from all available outside sources before requesting PCORI coverage of unmet needs. Sources of coverage may include the host healthcare delivery system, third-party payer, product manufacturer, developer of the intervention, or other interested parties. Although PCORI has not established any absolute dollar or percentage limit to the amount of patient care costs that an applicant may request, applicants should submit a realistic overall budget, which, if necessary, includes a well-supported and justified requested amount for PCORI coverage of patient care costs.
