“Mandated Insurance Coverage for Phase I and II Clinical Trials”

“The level of misunderstanding (feigned or actual) of the purpose of Phase I and Phase II clinical trials will have to be dealt with by the Federal Court of Appeals and possibly the Supreme Court to provide constitutional clarity as well as uniformity throughout the various States.

In addition to the confusion is a significant problem of giving credence to recruiting efforts Phase I and II cancer patients by giving the impression that Phase I and II trials are therapeutic and “paid for by your insurance company.” Informed consent is especially important in Phase II and II trials. These laws summarized above should not tend to lessen the requirement of detailed and well documented informed consent.”
