UFHP Clinics

Confirmation of Services (COS)

COS codes and pricing can be obtained either by the study team PRIOR to an OCR submission, or alternately, by the OCR CAB team AFTER submission to OCR.

If study team will be obtaining the COS, study team requests COS using the following form(s):

Instructions

  • Use this form if the clinic manager has asked you to complete a UFHP COS form for study-funded research services to take place in their clinic OR if you need budgeting pricing estimates for UFHP study-funded research services to take place in a UFHP clinic.
 

The UF Health Eye Center REQUIRES a UFHP Clinic COS.

If your study involves study-paid UF Eye Center services, you MUST contact Christina Kuruppacherry kuruppcl@ufl.edu to complete the COS.

For more information, see Set Up Research Services in the UF Health Eye Center

 

UFHP Clinic Research U Codes
