Do we need to report the CT.gov NCT# for the study on claims?
Effective January 1, 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is mandating the reporting of the clinical trial number assigned to the study on www.clinicaltrials.gov on all claims for items/services provided to beneficiaries participating in all clinical trials qualified for coverage (i.e. clinical trials, clinical studies, CMS-approved Category A and B Device trials, or registries resulting from studies covered under Coverage with Evidence Development).
The number to be reported on the claim is the number assigned by the National Library of Medicine ClinicalTrials.govwebsite when a new study is entered in the NLM Clinical Trials data base.
