Our professional assessment fee is $175 per hour. The time needed for an assessment includes a review of your records, an interview with you (and, if appropriate, and with your permission, with family members or friends), face-to-face testing, scoring of tests, interpretation of findings, preparation of the written report, and discussion of the test results with you. In most cases, this requires about 10-16 hours of time; however, each person and situation is different, and the total number of hours for an evaluation could be more or less than these typical numbers reflect. We can provide a rough estimate for your specific situation upon request.
Our forensic assessment fee is $225 per hour. In order to meet the standard of the court, forensic or legally-involved assessments generally require more time. Fees include depositions and all court-related time (including travel, preparation, and waiting time). Please note that our office does not accept contingency fee arrangements. Payment must be rendered prior to or at the time of service, and cannot be based upon us rendering a favorable opinion or upon a favorable outcome to the case.
No-Show or Late Cancellation
Due to the length of appointment times for these evaluations, a $250 cancellation fee may be charged for appointments cancelled without at least 48 hours’ notice. Insurance companies and most other third party payors cannot be billed for missed appointments, and it is very difficult to fill these times with little notice. Exceptions include weather, illness, or injury, in which case you should contact the office, and we can discuss waiving the fee.
