The Cost of Cancer Care in Clinical Trials

NCI has supported a number of studies that investigate the cost of patient care for patients enrolled in NCI-sponsored clinical trials compared to care received for comparable patients in standard community care. These data are essential to inform ongoing policy debates about the financial coverage by public and private health insurance plans of care received in cancer clinical trials.

See our bibliography of publications containing data on the cost of cancer care in clinical trials.
