Recommend a Friend

You may be compensated extra cash by recommending a friend.

DaVita Clinical Research (DCR) offers a Recommend-A-Friend Program to all study participants who’ve completed participation in a study.

The following program guidelines apply:

  • This program only applies to in-patient studies
  • Any person who refers a family member or friend to DCR must be in our DCR database in order to be compensated.
  • You will receive a $200 stipend for recommending someone in a chronic condition population (such as kidney, liver or cardiac conditions) or a $50 stipend for a healthy individual, only after that individual is enrolled in a study or completes status as an alternate.
  • Refer to the study specifics to confirm recommendation dollar amount.
  • If a new participant turns in a recommendation card, but is not accepted into the study for which he/she screened, the participant may enroll for another study in order to stay within the recommendation program guidelines.
  • A new study participant may only be recommended by one person.
  • DaVita teammates are not eligible for the Recommend a Friend program.
