People With Medicare
Do I qualify?
You may qualify for a clinical trial. It depends on:
- The type of cancer you have, and
- If a trial for your cancer is going on.
Your doctor can tell you if there is one that could help you.
People volunteer for clinical trials. But first, they learn about their trial. You should find out how long it lasts, what you must do as part of the study, and so on. The National Cancer Institute has more information on clinical trials.
Can I join a clinical trial if I am in a Medicare Advantage Plan?
Yes. You can get the same benefits as someone who has Original Medicare. To learn more, see Medicare and Clinical Research Studies.
