Clinical Trials - Provider Resources

Cancer Clinical Trials Coversheet - The Michigan Cancer Consortium strongly supports facilitation of patient participation in cancer clinical trials. The Affordable Care Act REQUIRES that insurers cover the cost of routine care for a person in a clinical trial. This cover sheet was created for use in situations when elements of the clinical trial need clarification, such as when prior authorization is required.
