What to Expect: The Testing Process
Initializing the request for testing
Filling out the testing intake form indicates the nature of your concern. We then verify whether your insurance benefits cover testing. In some instances, a pre-certification may be needed prior to beginning treatment.
Initial Appointment with Psychologist
Your psychologist will take the time to understand the nature of your concern. At this initial meeting your psychologist will initialize your diagnosis and determine the testing materials needed for the evaluation. The complete process will be explained at this time.
PTI accepts several insurances (link to insurances accepted). The insurance company may require a prior authorization. A PTI representative will help you determine whether your insurance will cover testing prior to testing begins. If your insurance company does not cover testing you may be responsible for the cost of the test. We will provide you with any information needed to assist with any appeals to your insurance company. Your PTI representative will make you aware of any cost to you prior to initiating testing.
Scheduling Your Testing Appointment
Your PTI representative will coordinate the best available time to meet with your psychologist and initial visit. Most initial assessments take several hours.
