Honoraria is offered for participation in each one of our studies - online surveys, in-depth interviews, and focus groups, as well as advisory council meetings. Honoraria payments vary and are based on your experience and our participation requirements for individual studies. We understand your free time is important, so we ensure that honoraria payments are competitive and processed quickly.
If you are unable to accept (or choose not to receive) honoraria for your participation, we are happy to donate your payment to the charity of your choosing.
Where is my payment?
You can expect to receive your honorarium within 3-4 weeks of completing a study with Health Strategies Insights.
If it has been 6 weeks since you have completed a study and you have not received your honorarium, please let us know!
My check was made out to the wrong recipient! What do I do?
This doesn't happen often but, once in a while, technology does something unexpected.
Keep the check in a safe place and send us an email. We'll reach out to you within 2 business days for more information and work on sending you a new payment ASAP.
What about taxes?
If you receive $600 or more in honoraria in one calendar year (that's January 1 through December 31), you qualify to receive a 1099-MISC form from Health Strategies Insights.
You do not need to keep track of your earnings. We will contact you directly if we require a W9 form and let you know where to send the information. We will keep all of your information private and confidential.
