In most cases, a referral for testing is requested of us by a treating physician involved in your care (e.g., primary care physician, neurologist, nurse practitioner, neurosurgeon, psychiatrist, etc.). We will ask to have your relevant medical records and referral for testing faxed to our office. Once the necessary paperwork is received, we will contact your insurance company 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. Although we will check with your insurance company for coverage of neuropsychological testing prior to your appointment as a service to you, we are not responsible for what your insurance company ultimately covers or does not cover, including co-insurance or deductibles. Therefore, we recommend that you check with your insurance carrier as well regarding coverage for testing prior to the exam. 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(s) 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.
