Psycho-educational assessments assist in the diagnosis of learning, behavior or emotional problems that a child/adult is experiencing. The assessment also aids in treatment planning and school placement. Suspected problems for which an assessment is typically recommended include: ADD/ADHD, Processing Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Dyslexia, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, and other types of developmental delays.
Dr. Scott Beebe provides full assessment of students in Spanish. This is done through area public schools or in his private practice. In addition to diagnosing learning problems, this assessment can determine the extent to which limited English proficiency is responsible for the child’s problems.
Dr. Scott Beebe and Ms. Melissa Greer perform disability evaluations for children and adults by contract with the Social Security Administration.
The initial appointment is $125. This is the time that Dr. Beebe will meet with parents, gather the necessary information, and together plan what will be the next steps in assessment.
The cost of a psycho-educational assessment will be $900 ($850 with check or cash). There is a nonrefundable $75 booking fee due when the appointment is made. This will be applied to the fee of the first appointment. If parents do not show for the first appointment, the $75 will serve as a missed appointment fee and an additional booking fee will be collected if another appointment is booked.
The Psych-educational assessment fee includes the testing session, written report and results conference with the parents. There are no additional fees if additional testing sessions are required. The appointment to discuss results with parents is included in the testing fee. However, if the parent does not show up for the results appointment, there will be a $125 to reschedule that appointment.
Adult ADHD Screening is $250. There will be a $75 booking fee which will apply to this fee. If the client does not show for the appointment, the $75 will serve as a missed appointment fee.
Payment is due at the time of service. Acceptable forms of payment include: check, cash, and/or credit card.
Drs. Scott and Amy Beebe work hard to keep their fees affordable.
With the exception of the veterans' exams, their services are considered “private pay” services, meaning that the parents of the child or the adult patient/client is responsible for paying for services themselves. However, if a patient/client wishes to file a claim themselves (for “Out of Network” reimbursement), we will provide an invoice with the needed insurance codes.
Many established mental health professionals do not join or remain on insurance panels for several reasons. Filing insurance requires a significant breach of patient/client confidentiality. This includes a psychiatric diagnosis which will then become part of the patient’s/client’s permanent health record. Having such a diagnosis could result in higher premiums, exclusions of preexisting conditions, or denial of insurance.
Also, there is a great deal of paperwork required, which takes time and energy away from the patient/client and significantly drives up costs. Providers who join insurance panels have to pass these costs on to clients in the form of higher fees.
