AcurianHealthresearch study scam

R Oct 16, 2018 Review updated:

I received a letter in the mail in 2018 explaining Acurian Health's research studies, with an 800# to call. I gave them some preliminary info and they sent me an eform to sign and send back, which would release my medical records. They also gave me the location of a clinic in my area that would be doing the study. When I called the clinic -- surprise, surprise -- they had not heard of Acurian Health nor were they involved in research. Acurian seems to be gathering HIPPA info illegally by promising money for studies that do not exist.

    It's strange that you say that because I was actually contacted by a legitimate study site about a week after I qualified. I got the voicemail but I haven't called back yet. I haven't seen anything to indicate that they are a scam.

    They are NOT A SCAM! In 2012 I received a form from them to fill out. It appears that I was qualified for a research study for those with Diabetes II. Long story short -- they sent me to a doctor for consultation. I was put on insulin for two years and after that taken off insulin. Nine years later, I still see the same doctor and there is absolutely no cost to me. While on the research program I was paid a fee of hundreds of dollars (tax free). I do not remember how much I received but it was pretty nice. To this day I get A1C, blood pressure and talk with the doctor about what is going on with my diabetes. Once a year I receive blood tests to check my kidneys, etc. and there is no cost at all to me. This is great, as I know there is a doctor who keeps me apprised of where my diabetes is and also coaches me as I progress. Without the insulin I am still at 6.7 with regular medications. Best doctor ever! Again, this is NO SCAM.
