Does my insurance cover the cost of neuropsychological or neurodevelopmental evaluation?

In general, insurance companies may cover neuropsychological testing that is deemed “medically necessary.” This is determined on an individual basis by the insurance carrier. Beacon will make every effort to support a family by completing the pre-authorization paperwork if they seek to access their medical benefits for the evaluation. It is important to note that not all cases are approved for neuropsychological testing. However, portions of the evaluation that are for educational or vocational purposes are not covered by insurance hence the additional out of pocket expense for the educational consultation.
