Billing plans.

In the Denver Metro Region, a billing plan is developed by Research Administration staff for each study that has any possible facility charges that are billed through EPIC. This is completed as part of the facility use review and approval process. The facility charges include clinic space, nursing and support services, procedures and labs performed, etc.

When a billing plan needs to be amended (due to a protocol amendment) or revised (due to updated information or an error), please email UCH-ResearchSupport@uchealth.org identifying the following:
  • IRB # (COMIRB # or UCHealth IRB #)
  • Reasons for Request: Revision or Amendment
  • If an amendment, please attach the revised protocol
  • If the changes include updated information for lab or radiology manuals, please attach the revised manuals
  • What changes are needed
    • If this is a simple change, a sentence or two may describe what’s needed. If it’s a complex change, this may require a new calendar of events with research and SOC items clearly marked.
  • We recommend that you submit requests for amendments at the same time that you submit them to your IRB. Please note that such amendments will require an IRB Certificate of Approval before being implemented, but this is NOT required at the time you submit the request for changes.

Please note that billing plans do not include professional fees, which are billed by University Physicians, Inc. If you have any questions about the professional fees for your study, please contact Kim Davis at Kimberly.Davis@upicolo.org.
