What to Expect

Length

Most evaluations span from approximately 9am-3:30pm, including interview, testing, and breaks. This varies with age and reason for testing. A parent or guardian should plan to remain on-site for pediatric evaluations. Scoring, interpretation, and report-writing are completed after the visit. 

Insurance

Prior to the visit, contact your plan to determine out-of-network reimbursement for neuropsychological (CPT 96116, 96132, 96133, 96136, 96137) & psychological (CPT 90791, 96130, 96131, 96136, 96137) testing. A detailed receipt is provided. Insurers do not cover evaluations for learning disabilities or academic concerns.
