We do not take a "one size fits all" approach. As such, there is no set fee for a given evaluation (except for Admissions testing) because each assessment is unique. You are invited to contact us for a free consultation. After having the opportunity to gather relevant information, the clinician will provide you with a testing plan as well as a carefully articulated (and formally presented) estimate of cost.
Full payment in advance is only required for Saturday admisisons testing appointments.
We aim to treat you and your family the same way that we would hope to be treated. Sometimes missing an appointment is outside of your control. If an Admissions testing appointment is cancelled within 48 hours, it is subject to a $50 fee. However, we strongly encourage (and may require) postponement in the event of illness, as we aim to preserve a healthy environment for all. Cancelling a diagnostic testing appointment is more complex and we appreciate as much advanced notice as possible, as there is often a waiting list for our services.
WPA clinicians operate as "out of network" providers. Services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. Insurance typically reimburses at the conclusion of psychological evaluation. Therefore, you are responsible for making payment directly to your WPA evaluator. In turn, you will receive a statement that is appropriate to share with your insurance carrier for reimbursement.
It is advisable to contact them PRIOR to testing to determine what your coverage may be. The following questions are recommended:
1. What benefits do you have that cover psychological evaluation (billing code 96101) and neuropsychological testing
(billing code 96118)?
2. What is the rate of reimbursement? (confirm that this is for an out-of-network provider)
3. Is pre-authorization required?
4. Are there limits to the coverage? (diagnosis, deductible, number of hours, etc.)
Reduced fee services are available on a limited basis.
Cash and check (made out to Washington Psychology Associates) are accepted for payment.
