GUIDELINES FOR SPONSORED RESEARCH DIAGNOSTIC ORDER FORM
• This form MUST be used to order research related diagnostic radiology exams. It is also
required for research related Cardiology, Pulmonary, and Neurology services.
• Do not use the Sponsored Research Diagnostic Order Form for non-research related diagnostic services that are being ordered at the same time. Use the usual order process for non-research related services (i.e., prescription blank, other pre-printed order form, standard EPIC order process, etc.). • The red box on the upper left side of the form MUST be completed. The ordering physician (who will most likely be the Principal Investigator or a Co-investigator) must indicate how the research related service is to be billed. The choices are: Bill Research Grant/Study OR Bill Patient/Insurance
• “Bill Research Grant/Study should be marked if the sponsor is paying for the service. The selection of this option should be consistent with the protocol and the corresponding information provided on the clinical trials analysis form completed at the time the research study was approved or renewed. It should also be consistent with the financial responsibility information provided on the patient’s informed consent. • When selecting, “Bill Research Grant/Study”, the hospital technical component and the
corresponding professional component will be billed to the grant account for the research study. It is important to indicate the WMC Account Number for the research grant/study. This is a six-digit account number. A corresponding three-digit suffix assigned by NYPH (available after March 1, 2006) should be listed in addition to the WMC grant account number. Also list the Principal Investigator’s Name and the Principal Investigator’s NYPH ID code.
• “Bill Patient/Insurance” should be marked if the research related service is considered “Standard
of Care” and is not be paid for by the study sponsor. When this is selected, the ordering provider
is indicating the service is medically necessary regardless of the fact that the patient is enrolled in a
research study. The hospital and physician fees will be billed to the patient and/or their insurance
as applicable. This should also correspond to the information provided on the clinical trial analysis
form as well as the information provided to the patient at the time of obtaining his/her consent for
• Registrars cannot accept this form if the red box labeled “Mandatory Field” is incomplete as this information determines financial responsibility and ensures compliance with the grant/study billing. Failure to use this form when ordering research related diagnostic services or failure to use the form properly may result in any of the following: o Incorrect billing to the patient; o Incorrect billing to the research account; o Administrative inefficiencies while phone calls or other personal contacts are made to o Non-compliance reported to Office of Billing Compliance for a corrective action plan For more information, contact your department’s billing compliance representative or one of the following:
Please make sure the appropriate staff member has a supply of the SPONSORED RESEARCH
DIAGNOSTIC ORDER FORM available for your department’s use. Additional forms can be ordered
by using the approved NYPH order number on the left side of the form (51131).
