What precautions do we take to prevent coronavirus spread?
Dr. Levine has a Humboldt County COVID-19 Plan Approval Certificate based on the steps taken to mitigate risk of coronavirus spread. These includes: (1) minimizing or avoiding time in common areas (e.g., waiting room), (2) use of face masks according to current mandates, (3) running HEPA-filter and UV-light equipped air purifier throughout the evaluation, (4) negative air pressure current between Dr. Levine and patients, effectively moving air current out of the window, (5) hand sanitizer available throughout the evaluation, (6) all equipment is wiped down after use, (7) typically, only one patient is seen each day.
How long will the evaluation take?
Evaluations can last anywhere from 2 hours to a full day, depending on the type of evaluation and referral question. Some evaluations, especially for severely impaired and elderly individuals, may be conducted over several days.
What happens after the evaluation?
For clinical evaluations, a report is generated within two weeks. Patients may return for a feedback session, during which the results and recommendations are shared. For non-clinical evaluations, a report is provided to the referring party typically within two weeks, but sometimes longer for QME/AME evaluations.
How much will this cost?
The cost of clinical diagnostic evaluations ranges from $1200 - $3500. In most instances, with a proper physician referral and authorization from your insurance company, the out-of-pocket cost will be substantially lower. Neuropsychological assessment is typically covered under your insurance plan's medical coverage when you are referred by a physician in order to establish a diagnosis as the basis for medical treatment, to evaluate the functional impact of a medical treatment, or to assist in selecting a treatment.
What forms of payment are accepted?
For clinical evaluations, we may accept insurance. Please contact for more information. For out-of-network evaluations, patients may submit a "super bill" to their insurance company. To assist, we can include appropriate CPT codes. Please check with your insurance for more specific coverage questions. Checks and credit cards are acceptable for co-pays and other payments.
