The comprehensive fee for a psychological assessment is $1500. This includes assessment of cognitive, emotional, attentional, and educational components. Most comprehensive assessments require three testing sessions of between 2 to 3 hours. Assessments also require time to score and interpret results and to meet with you to go over the results. You will ao receive a final written report psychological report. It takes a number of hours to write a comprehensive report about test findings. Reports for psychological assessments are not released or provided until full payment is received. Most insurance companies will not pay for a psychological or educational assessment related to diagnosis of learning disabilities and in many cases ADHD. It is important to check with your insurance company if you plan on seeking reimbursement from them.

I will give you a bill with the codes needed for insurance reimbursement that you can submit. Health insurance companies usually do not pay for services related to educational needs. They may pay for ADHD testing but not for assessment of current educational achievement. Services in the table above that have CPT codes are usually reimbursed by health insurance and health savings account programs.
