Central Jersey Neuropsychology, LLC is committed to providing thorough and comprehensive evaluations to best meet your needs. In order to maintain this commitment, Central Jersey Neuropsychology, LLC does not accept insurance. You may be eligible for reimbursement through your health insurance company for the services provided, including the diagnostic interview (CPT Code 90791), psychological testing (CPT Code 96101), neuropsychological testing (CPT Code 96118), and/or a follow-up session (CPT Code 90846). A portion of the flat fee may be billed as academic testing, which does not have a CPT Code and is not reimbursable by insurance. You will be provided with an insurance claim form that can be submitted to your insurance company. Before scheduling an appointment, you are encouraged to ask your insurance company about your out-of-network coverage, and, specifically, your plan's coverage of CPT Codes 96101/96118, including if a physician referral is required, if preauthorization for 96101/96118 is required, and about any "medical necessity" criteria or limits to coverage. Central Jersey Neuropsychology, LLC cannot guarantee you will be reimbursed by your health insurance company. Most health insurance companies do not cover testing for educational or academic purposes. Although testing is often highly beneficial and uniquely informative for diagnostic and treatment/intervention planning purposes, testing that does not meet the specific "medical necessity" criteria for your plan may be considered educational in nature or otherwise ineligible for coverage.
A note about scheduling when preauthorization is required:
Please notify Dr. Severino before your intake appointment if preauthorization is required for testing. When preauthorization is required, paperwork must be submitted to your insurance company following the initial intake interview. Extra time is needed to prepare and submit the necessary paperwork and to wait for your insurance company to process the request. Testing will not be scheduled until the request has been processed. Failing to request preauthorization when it is required may result in a denial of your claim. Receiving preauthorization for testing does not guarantee reimbursement.
