Over the course of the Intuition Study, you will accumulate points for completion of Intuition Study tasks.

If you complete all Intuition Study-related activities, including the virtual visit, the total compensation you may receive is about $300.00. In addition to the compensation, if you accumulate 100,000 points, you can keep the Apple Watch after the Intuition Study ends. If you do not complete the Intuition Study, you will be paid only for the parts you complete. If you do not earn enough points to keep the Apple Watch, you will be asked to return it. The costs of returning the Apple Watch will be covered by Biogen.
Any study-related compensation earned through the Intuition Study may be taxable. You may wish to consult with a tax adviser as to the proper tax treatment of any incentive/reward.
