FEES & INSURANCE

Beginning April 1, 2023, I will no longer be an in-network provider with any insurance company, but you may still be able to get coverage from your insurance as an "out of network" benefit.

I do offer a limited number of reduced-fee evaluations. Let me know if you believe you would qualify for a need-based, reduced-fee evaluation.

A Note About Insurance

If I am not an in-network provider for your insurance plan, there may be a work-around for getting your insurance to cover some of the costs of my services: 

First, call your insurance company to inquire if you have "out of network" benefits. Ask them about the percentage of the costs they might cover for an out-of-network provider, and ask what your deductible is.​ Please see my FAQ page for more details on questions to ask your insurance provider.

After our testing is complete, I will provide you with a "superbill" (a statement that you can submit to your insurance company), and they may reimburse you for some of the cost of my services.

If I am in-network with your insurance, I am happy to bill claims directly to your insurance company for you. In ALL cases, it is the patient or patient’s family’s responsibility to review their insurance benefit for coverage with my services. I do not routinely provide checks for insurance coverage on patients’ plans and highly recommend that a patient or patient’s family does so before initiating treatment services with me. 

Sometimes insurance companies will subcontract out their clients' mental health benefits to another insurance company. Please be sure that your medical insurance provider is the same as your mental health insurance provider. You can check this by looking at the back of your insurance card. If there is a separate phone number listed for "Behavioral Health" or "Mental Health" services, call that number and ask what insurance company provides those services for you. 

Note that for all evaluations using insurance, I have a $40 Testing Materials Fee that is not billable to insurance.

WHAT ARE MY FEES?

COMPREHENSIVE EVALUATIONS

Flat Rate: $3,000

  • Testing begins with a one-hour intake  appointment for parents only ($275). This is where we will discuss your concerns about your child in detail, before initiating testing. 

  • The remainder of the cost ($2,725) is for the rest of the evaluation process. Evaluations typically require between 10-15 hours of time spent administering and scoring the testing, speaking with outside referral sources (when appropriate), reviewing records, interpreting the results of testing, and writing up results into a diagnostic report. This flat rate fee also includes a final feedback session with the parent(s) to discuss the results and recommendations.

  • I will ask for half of the fee, as a deposit, after our intake appointment. The remaining half of the fee will be due after the testing is complete. 

  • If I am out of network with your insurance provider, I will provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please be sure that your "behavioral health" or "mental health" services are also covered by the same insurance company that provides your medical coverage. You can check this by looking at the back of your insurance card, and if there is a number listed separately for "behavioral health," call that number to ask who provides that coverage for your plan. 

IQ TESTING

Flat Rate: $650

  • I have a flat rate of $650 for IQ testing, which is usually performed if you are interested in having your child apply to gifted/private schools in the area. This fee includes about 1-2 hours of testing with the child and brief summary/write-up of the results.

  • I do not routinely provide a follow-up feedback appointment after the testing is complete, but you are welcome to ask questions via email or schedule an additional consultation session with me ($95 for a 30-minute appointment).

  • IQ testing for private school admissions is not covered by insurance.

EARLY ENTRANCE TO KINDERGARTEN TESTING

Flat Rate: $675

  • I have a flat rate of $675 for Early Entrance to Kindergarten Evaluations (EEKE). This includes about 2 hours of testing with the child and a brief summary/write-up of the results.

  • I do not routinely provide a follow-up feedback appointment after the testing is complete, but you are welcome to ask questions via email or schedule an additional consultation session with me ($95 for a 30-minute appointment).

  • Early Entrance Testing is not covered by insurance.

CONSULTATION SESSIONS

$185/hour

  • I am available for consultation with parents and teachers, most often as follow-up after an evaluation is complete. For example, parents sometimes ask me to attend school meetings. I can also provide short-term behavioral consultation for parents. 

  • Consultation appointments are scheduled in 60-minute increments but sometimes run shorter, and I will bill accordingly.
