Psychological Testing is available to all clients who have had an initial Psychiatric/Medical Diagnostic Evaluation. Any parent can request testing for their child or themselves. Psychological testing is also available for Court, Substance Abuse evaluations, and School Disability Services. Please note that as per some insurance companies: Formal Psychological Testing is neither clinically indicated for routine screening or assessment of behavioral health disorders, nor is it indicated for the administration of brief behavior rating scales and inventories. Requests for placement purposes and forensic purposes are typically not covered benefits. Requests for educational testing or learning disabilities assessments for educational purposes are typically referred first to the public school system. By signing this form, you indicate that you understand that your services may be denied coverage and that you understand that Battlefield Counseling Centers requires a $350.00 deposit at the time of testing for full batteries. If a client requests a behavioral inventory the center assesses a fee of $100.00. These fees are not billed to insurance and are specifically to cover all agency costs associated with conducting your Evaluation.
