An evaluation may be scheduled directly by the patient if self-referred and no insurance carrier is involved (i.e., private-pay), or via a referral from your treating physician or healthcare provider (e.g., primary care physician, neurologist, nurse practitioner, social worker, neurosurgeon, psychiatrist, etc.). If you are paying privately, please contact our office for our competitive rates. If you are paying through your insurance company (i.e., BCBS), we will ask to have your medical records and referral for testing faxed to our office. Once the necessary paperwork is received, we will contact BCBS to determine coverage for the neuropsychological evaluation. Depending on the insurance company, preauthorization for the testing may be required, which may delay the scheduling of the evaluation until authorization is obtained. Please note, we are not responsible for what the insurance company ultimately covers or does not cover, including co-insurance or deductibles. Once we have received the necessary information from the insurance company, we will call you and schedule an appointment.
You should plan to arrive 20 to 30 minutes prior to your exam to complete paperwork. We will also photocopy your insurance card and collect any balance due. You are responsible for payment of any unmet deductible, coinsurance, or co-pay prior to the exam. Payment is accepted in the form of a personal check, cash and Visa/MasterCard.
