WHY WOULD I NEED TO BE TESTED FOR ADHD AS AN ADULT?
Most adults who seek an evaluation for ADHD experience significant problems and interference in multiple areas of daily life. The following are some of the most common inconveniences:
- Inconsistent performance in jobs or careers; no history of long-term employment.
- History of academic and/or career underachievement.
- Difficulty managing and organizing daily responsibilities, important life tasks and household chores.
- History of forgetting important things and struggling to maintain important relationships.
- Feel overwhelmed, stressed, and worried due to failing to accomplish goals and meet responsibilities on time.
DOES INSURANCE COVER TESTING? WHAT IS THE COST?
Currently, we accept the following insurances:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Priority Health
If you have other insurance, let us know and we will work to see if testing and evaluation is covered for you.
For those without applicable insurance, you have the option to pay the testing and evaluation fee out of pocket. This fee is set at $500.
WHAT DOES ADHD TESTING AND EVALUATION INVOLVE?
At Serene Solutions, we implement best practices to provide a thorough and comprehensive evaluation process, occurring over the course of two in-person appointments. Assessment is provided for inattention, hyperactivity/underactivity, emotional regulation, executive function, and memory capacity, per DSM-5 diagnostic criteria. Additional exploration inherently occurs during your evaluation to ensure we have a complete picture of you. This allows us to better understand and be responsive to the needs and goals you may have for your health.
This initial appointment involves an oral evaluation interview and on-site testing.
This appointment typically lasts 2-3 hours, based upon your needs.
You will be provided with a report of your results, with full review, explanation, and opportunity to ask questions or share any concerns you may have. The report will include recommendations for treatment options if and as necessary and you will receive helpful resources to support you beyond your evaluation.
This appointment typically lasts 60 – 90 minutes, again based on your needs.
Follow up Consultation (optional):
For those who choose to take advantage, an additional 1-hour consultation is offered. This provides further opportunity to receive guidance on next steps, information and education on behavioral/lifestyle changes and proven coping strategies. These will be tailored to your needs and based upon your evaluation outcomes.
