Testing fees include the initial parent interview, direct contact hours spent administering the battery of tests, scoring/interpreting assessments, a comprehensive written report with practical and specific recommendations, and a feedback meeting to review test results with parents or caregivers. The fee for testing depends on the battery of tests Mrs. Olaechea deems appropriate or necessary for the child.
Cash, check or credit cards are acceptable forms of payment. As a courtesy to our patients, CGCC will gladly submit an out-of-network claim form to insurance companies upon request. We offer this service for the convenience of our patients. It is up to the discretion of the insurance company whether or not they will reimburse patients for a portion of the fee paid to CGCC.
