If you are pursuing assessment for yourself or your child, we are pleased that you have chosen to work with the highly trained clinicians at Horizons Psychological Assessment Center.
Our evaluation fees vary by the nature of the referral. Every evaluation will include:
Horizons Psychological Assessment Center (HPAC) does not accept insurance. For your convenience, HPAC accepts different payment options (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, Check, or Cash). Rates for a psychological or psychoeducational assessment vary, depending upon the complexity of the assessment and the amount of time required.
This will not change the many advantages of using Self-Pay for your care, as explained below.
Advantages of Self-Pay:
Utilizing self-pay for your therapy or diagnostic services without relying on insurance or other 3rd party payors allows you to maintain the most control over your privacy by minimizing the exposure of your protected health information (PHI).
Furthermore, the advantage of Self-Pay includes the fact that no records of the evaluation exist in the Medical Information Bureau. MIB records could potentially compromise your ability to get current or future life, health, disability, or long-term care insurance. Once such diagnosis code is recorded by the insurance, it becomes part of your permanent health care record even after your symptoms have gone into remission. Self-Pay does not require a diagnosis code to justify the medical necessity for the services provided.
In the event of Self-Pay, your evaluation process remains completely private (with the exceptions to confidentiality such as threats of eminent danger toward self or others). You must give HPAC signed permission to consult with any other provider, institution, agency, or individual in your life. No reports of the evaluation are shared with your insurance and all records remain with the HPAC only.
Appointments are made to reserve a specific time for you; therefore, a minimum of 24 hours notice is required for canceling or rescheduling an appointment. A $300.00 fee will be charged for evaluation appointments that are missed, canceled or rescheduled without 24 hours notice. Please note that several hours are reserved for your evaluation session and no shows/cancellations without notice impact the provision of services for our clients.
