What type of testing do you offer?

How is your testing different than meeting with a psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor specializing in prescribing medication for psychological conditions.  They often interview you and ask you to fill out questionnaires.  This is often a good start for individuals who are certain they want to start medication and need a professional to prescribe and monitor how well the medication is working.

A psychologist is a doctoral level (Ph.D.) advanced academic degree.  We are trained to provide comprehensive evaluations for psychological conditions.  It will involve a more in-depth analysis and written report with diagnoses and recommendations for treatment.  Our psychological evaluations can range from 1-3 hours.  All evaluations include an initial interview with the psychologist so that we can understand your current symptoms and talk with you about whether we think testing would benefit you, and what diagnoses we need to rule in (or out).  Our evaluations conclude with a one-on-one feedback with the psychologist to go over the results with you and guide you on the next steps for treatment.

What are your price ranges? Do you take insurance?

Our prices are based on the number of hours needed for testing.  For a psychological evaluation, this usually ranges from 1-2 hours, and we will let you know after your initial meeting with us what we recommend.  The price range starts at around $550 and up. Our evaluations are detailed, comprehensive, and of the highest quality.

We do not work directly with insurance companies.  We do provide detailed medical receipts so that you can submit for reimbursement any "out of network" benefits you can claim.  We also accept HSA cards. 

  • How do your rates and service compare to other providers?
    We pride ourselves in high quality services that is individualized for your specific needs. Our evaluations are very thorough, and we don't cut corners. Our pricing reflects individual time with the psychologist, a full written report with recommendations, and a feedback session to go over the results with you. We often hear from clients that our evaluations were very comprehensive, that our recommendations were individually tailored, specific, and useful. We often hear at our feedback sessions how glad they were to have chosen us and that they feel better about what direction to take now that they have clearer answers. It's why we get many word of mouth referrals from other families who have been here before.
  • Do you take insurance?
    Although we are currently out of network with all insurance providers, at your request we can provide a detailed medical receipt that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. You are encouraged to check with your insurance directly to inquire about what is covered on your specific plan.
  • Is testing for Learning Disabilities covered by my insurance?
    Unfortunately, no. There are no insurance plans that cover educational testing. Why? This type of testing can be done in the school setting. In the school system, you can request testing for dyslexia. If you are concerned with other aspects of reading (e.g., reading comprehension), math, or writing, you are asking for a Full and Individual Evaluation (FIE). This is done to determine if your child meets criteria for a learning disability through special education. All of this is at no cost to you. However, the school must agree that testing is needed. The process takes 2-3 months once approved.
  • Are Psychological Evaluations covered by insurance?
    Usually yes. Since we do not take insurance, any testing we conduct will be paid by you out of pocket. We can provide you with a detailed medical receipt (with CPT codes) to submit to your insurance carrier for reimbursement with an "out of network" provider. We don't guarantee any reimbursement, but we can help you with the information to file a claim for any benefits for which you may be eligible. Contact your provider if you want to know if, and what amount, you can be reimbursed.
