This schedule (PDF) describes the fixed fees associated with Seattle Children’s participation in clinical research studies. The fees are set by the hospital service areas based on the costs required to provide the associated services and are considered non-negotiable. The charges are only incurred when the specified service is actually required by the study (e.g., if no investigational drug is required, neither IDS charge applies). F&A is included in all rates specified.
