Neuropsychological Assessment Fees
Assessment costs vary based on the complexity of the assessment and the amount of psychometric testing, document review, report writing, and interviews required. The following are typical costs for various types of neuropsychological assessments, but the actual cost may be higher or lower depending on the time required.
MEDICAL-LEGAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT
- Medical-Legal assessments are requested for legal proceedings and involve an in-depth review of your medical file and a detailed assessment of neuropsychological function. Assessments that are intended to be used in court are significantly more involved as the reports address the referral questions in the manner of a comprehensive legal document. The cost associated with medical-legal assessments is in the range of $7000 but may cost more depending on the complexity of the case.
COMPREHENSIVE NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT
This is the standard neuropsychological assessment that will be required in most cases, and will provide an in-depth assessment of current function. These assessments typically include a 60-minute intake interview, between 6-8 hours of testing, a full written report and a 60-minute feedback session. These assessments start at $4500 but may cost more, depending on the complexity of your case.
BRIEF NEUROPSYCHOLOGICAL SCREENER
- Brief forms of testing can be beneficial for personal use and include a 60-minute intake interview, between 2-4 hours of testing, a 60-minute feedback session and a brief written summary of test results. These assessments start at $1800 but may cost more, depending on the complexity of your case.
