State Clinical Trials Law

The ACA requires that most, non-grandfathered, group health plans provide coverage for the routine costs when participating in clinical trials. Some states have more consumer protections. Click here for more information about clinical trials.

NRSA §§689A.04033, 689B.0306, 695B.1903, 695C.1693, 695G.173 – The statutes apply to all health insurers, medical service corporations, HMOs, and managed care organizations, which must pay routine patient care costs associated with clinical trials.  For cancer clinical trials, the amended statutes cover Phases I, II, III and IV.

To qualify, the clinical trial must be approved by one of the following:  (1) NIH, (2) U.S. F.D.A. as an application for a new investigational drug, (3) U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, (4) U.S. Dept. of Defense, or (5) a cooperative group.  Second, the healthcare facility and personnel conducting the study must have experience and training to provide the treatment in a capable manner.  Third, there must be no medical treatment available which is considered a more effective alternative treatment than the experimental treatment.  Fourth, there must be reasonable expectation based on clinical data that the treatment provided in the trial will be at least as effective as any other medical treatment.
