We do accept insurance for psychological assessment, however, you will be required to get a pre-authorization for psychological testing. Often an initial evaluation is needed to assess if testing is appropriate and for your insurance company to authorize testing. We accept most major insurances including Medicaid and Medicare.
You will also be required to have a credit card on file for all testing. Your card will only be charged for any portion of your evaluation that is not covered by your insurance. We will let you know this in advance. We cannot release the psychological report to you until the assessment is paid for.
The cost for psychological assessment is $200 per hour. Depending on what type of testing you are having completed, the total cost of an evaluation can range from $500 to $2000.
Act 120 and Act 235 Evaluations are $500 and they are not covered by insurance. Insurance will not cover this type of evaluation.
