I am happy to discuss my rates and/or insurance applicability over the phone or during our initial consultation. I accept HMSA, UHA, HMAA, Tricare, MDX Hawaii (Queen's Health Care Plan), and HMSA Quest. I am not a medicaid/medicare provider.   Many insurance plans require pre-authorization for testing and insurance does not cover the cost of testing/evaluation unless the patient is suspected of having a significant mental health condition (i.e., DSM-IV Axis I disorder) and the testing is relevant to and important for diagnosis and/or treatment planning.  Typical cost for “out-of pocket” evaluations is between $600 and $900, which includes diagnostic interviews, face-to-face testing, scoring and interpreting of tests, a written report, and a debriefing session during which time the report will be reviewed.  As costs vary, it would be best for us to discuss this with you in person.


If you are unable to keep an appointment, I ask that you kindly provide me with at least 24 hours advance notice. I simply ask for this advance notice so that I may offer this appointment to another client.  A fee will be charged the second time a patient fails to show up for an appointment or cancels without sufficient notice.
