Fairview Research Accounts & Billing
Pricing and Billing
The University of Minnesota and Fairview Health Services have defined a process for the purchase, use of, and payment for research services provided by Fairview Health Services and University of Minnesota Physicians. There are two underlying principles of this process:
- Researchers contact Fairview Research Administration and describe the services required to conduct their research project. This includes distinguishing research from routine-care services.
- Fairview Research Administration will provide researchers with service codes and prices for requested tests or procedures. They will also set up research accounts and manage billing for research study-related services.
This process is described in more detail in the Time and Study Collection System (TASCS) User’s Manual.
