Creating & Billing Animal Charges

Billing Process for Per Diems (Cage Cards)

Billing of per diems is based on the cage card begin and end dates. It is very important for regulatory purposes and for our billing process that all cages have cage cards and that concluded cage cards are returned on a timely basis and properly completed with a conclusion date. If a cage card has not been concluded in the database it will be billed for the entire month.


The purchase charge on the Billing Report will include the vendor's invoice amount and the O.A.R. Handling Charge (PDF).

Supply & Service Charges

Surgical and research technical support by the veterinary technician is billed to the investigator at a rate of $35.00 per hour plus the cost of supplies. Please view the Surgical Suite Policy (PDF).
