Other info to think about when joining a study

When the study team is providing information about what will happen if you participate in the study, they may say if they will reimburse you.

You can ask if the study team will reimburse you for out-of-pocket costs related to participating in the study. For example, if you have to pay for parking at the study site, you can ask if the study team pay you back for that cost. Find out what out-of-pocket costs will be reimbursed can be important when deciding whether or not to join a study.
