Why All Psychological Testing Services Are Not Equal
Elevate Your Expectations: Realize that All Testing Isn't Equal
When it comes to psychological testing, it’s crucial to understand that not all services are identical in quality. The caliber of the assessment you receive isn’t just about a provider merely offering the service. At its core, it’s about the people behind those services.
The competence of the provider plays an instrumental role. An adept clinician, fortified by years of experience, offers insights and analysis that are both nuanced and precise. But it doesn’t stop there. The fervor and dedication with which a clinic director oversees and ensures the consistent quality of the service are just as vital.
At Bright Pine Behavioral Health, our clinic director, Dr. Kat Lewitzke PsyD believes in an obsessive commitment to excellence. Our team’s passion for their craft means you’re not just getting a standard service; you’re experiencing the pinnacle of psychological testing.
Choose wisely. Because when it comes to your mental health, quality is more than a preference; it’s a necessity.

Why Our Process Stands Out
Navigating the world of psychological assessment providers can be overwhelming, but rest assured, we are here to help. With our extensive clinical experience, we provide a high-quality, comprehensive solution that delivers the most thorough diagnostic results and valuable treatment recommendations.
As experts in our field, we understand the importance of finding the right provider and are dedicated to guiding you through the process. We believe that an informed choice leads to the best possible care, and we strive to ensure that you have all the necessary information to make that decision.
While there are other providers that offer assessment services, not all have the experience and obsession to provide their clients with thorough and comprehensive results.
We have found that those providers who promise “low costs and quick turnaround times” often result in substandard diagnostic reports, which is truly a major disservice to their clients.
Therefore, the real value lies in working with an experienced and passionate provider who will take the time to fully understand your unique case.
With multiple testing experts on staff, our clients can always trust us to provide the high-quality evaluation services and thorough diagnostic results their families deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Psychological Testing Services
Do you Take Insurance?
Yes. We are in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Blue Care Network, and ASR. If we are not in-network with your carrier, we could still see you and provide you with a superbill reimbursement invoice for you to submit to your carrier for credit toward the out-of-network benefits portion of your plan. A superbill invoice is an official reimbursement invoice that contains all the billable service codes your carrier uses to process claims.

How Long Does A Psychological Evaluation Take?
A Full Neuropsychological Assessment takes approximately 12-15 clinician hours to complete. The psychological testing time frame is broken down as follows:
- 1 hr – Intake Appointment

- 2-3 hrs – Report Production
- 1 hr – Feedback

What Are The Typical Costs Involved With Psychological Testing Services?
Costs can vary depending on the insurance carrier and your contract as that drives the rate. Some plans have deductibles while other plans don’t. A deductible is an amount a subscriber has to meet before the carrier covers a portion or all of the costs associated. Whether you’re paying out of pocket or utilizing your insurance, our fee structure is simple and broken down below:
- Administration Fee: Our administration fee is always an out-of-pocket cost and is not reimbursable by your carrier. The admin fee is designed to cover the costs of the materials/protocols as well as time for equipment use setup and proper equipment maintenance and sanitation. Our admin fees are detailed on our terms page.
- Intake Appointment Fee: CPT 90791. The cost is driven by contracted rates set forth by your carrier. Out-of-pocket costs are driven by the deductible and cost share.
- In-Person Testing: Combination of CPT 96130,96131,96132,96133,96136,96137,96138,96139 The cost is driven by contracted rates set forth by your carrier. Out-of-pocket costs are driven by the deductible and cost share.
- Feedback Appointment: CPT 90837 The cost is driven by contracted rates set forth by your carrier. Out-of-pocket costs are driven by the deductible and cost share.
Total dollar costs will vary by plan and by the insurance carrier. It is always the client’s responsibility to call their carrier and learn about their coverage.
I have a High Deductible Plan But Need To Know The Expected Cost Prior To Moving Forward
Every insurance company has different contracted rates but if you have a deductible higher than $3000, most clients can expect the cost to be in the $1800-3000 range for a full neuropsychological assessment.
*this cost estimate range also includes our standard administration fee and 12-15 hours of involved clinician time.
Do You Offer Payment Plans For Psychological Testing Services?
Yes. In an effort to make the service both available and affordable we’ve partnered with Care Credit. Whether you’re using Care Credit to privately or to meet your plan’s deductible, you’ll have a plethora of repayment and term options available to you.
Care Credit makes it easy, simple, and affordable.
I Need To Know What Protocols You Administer Prior To Moving Forward
All testing batteries are custom-tailored and designed by our Clinic Director. Although detailed questions should be reserved for the billable intake appointment, we do understand and respect that some clients require more information to make an informed decision for themselves and their families. To provide the best service possible, our expert clinicians offer a 20-minute consultation call to address any and all concerns prior to you making any commitments with scheduling.
