The University of Kentucky Clinical Research Support Office (CRSO) supports investigators and clinical research coordinators across campus to conduct clinical research. 

We review all clinical research studies to determine if a coverage analysis is needed and if the study is required to be tracked in the CTMS. 

In addition, we can provide fee-based regulatory, recruitment, and clinical trial financial management services to assist investigators and their teams in conducting clinical research.

CRSO will hold Office Hours starting March 6th, 2020 from 11-12 in C-110 and every Friday after from 10-11. Stop by and bring any issues or questions you may have with OnCore.

Research Billing Integrity

Effective March 1, 2019, all clinical research studies and amendments must be submitted to the CRSO for coverage analysis prior to budget finalization.

The service request form for amendments can be found at: Amendment Submission Form

Details about Coverage Analysis can be found here.

The CRSO will provide a detailed coverage analysis (CA), which is required for all clinical trials that may generate billable charges. Preparing the CA involves first determining whether or not a trial is qualifying. For qualifying studies, a detailed analysis of each procedure or service outlined in the protocol, will determine the potential for reimbursement from Medicare or Third-Party Insurance. The CRSO collaborates with investigators and study teams while preparing the CA so that the PI's expertise and insights are reflected in the final document.

In the case of a disputed coverage analysis, investigators should contact Vice Dean for Research, Dr. Geddes, at to initiate the dispute resolution process.
