A neuropsychological evaluation is a significant investment in the well-being and future of yourself or your child. Based on the time involved, adult evaluations are typically $3200, child/adolescent evaluations $4000, and child/adolescent evaluations plus a full academic assessment are $5000.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of insurance companies do not reimburse the number of hours that are required to completed a comprehensive evaluation. In order to complete the type of thorough assessment that we believe serves our clients best and is clinically warranted, evaluations are private pay. However, most insurance companies will reimburse you for part of the cost of the evaluation, and we will provide you with the paperwork that can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions beforehand.
With a few exceptions that are explained at the start of the evaluation, almost all information shared by a client is confidential. This includes the results of your evaluation, which are covered by the same patient-client confidentiality laws as therapy and are shared only with you, or, in the case of minors, parents. If the evaluation has been requested by an oustide organization - such as a school - then you will have already consented to sharing the findings before testing begins. In such cases, Dr. Monaco provides a private feedback session to parents as well as participating in a team meeting, if the school requests it.
