So your child needs a psycho-educational evaluation?
Is testing covered by insurance?
I am an in- network provider for Cigna. Insurance companies reimburse for testing except for diagnosis of learning disorders and testing that is considered educational. . If your child needs academic testing as part of the psycho-educational evaluation, it is the your (the parent's) responsibility to cover the out-of-pocket expense for this portion of the assessment.
Call to your insurance company requesting if the CPT code 96101 (psychological testing) is covered by them.
If you have another insurance besides Cigna, call your insurance to find out about your out of network benefits. Most insurances will cover partially some of the psychological services. I can provide you with an invoice and statement for insurance reimbursement with a detailed breakdown of testing, procedure codes, and diagnosis upon request.
Who has access to my child's report?
When testing is done privately, only you have access to test results.
If using insurance, your insurance company will have access to your child's diagnosis.
If tested through the school, the report will be a part of your child's confidential school record,
Are you available to meet with my child's school personnel to review the results and recommendations?
Yes! If you would like me to attend any school meetings, let me know. Providing a multidisciplinary approach is the best way to give your child well-rounded support.
We covered a ton of information during the feedback, can I call you or email you with questions after the fact?
Definitely. I take my time during the feedback session to bring everything together. How your child's background correlates to their performance on the evaluations, the results and recommendations.
Therefore, I understand that it can be overwhelming to fully comprehend everything we covered and that more questions may pop up as you re-read the report and let the results sink in.
Please contact me if you have any questions. You are your child's number one advocate and you need to be well-versed in their abilities to make sure they receive the accommodations they deserve to excel academically.
Do you also provide gifted testing?
