Fees

When deciding upon a neurofeedback provider, keep in mind that only licensed professionals may give you a receipt to file with your insurance company. And most insurance companies will pay for at least the first two visits (initial consultation and testing/evaluation appointments).

Initial Consultation
The first step in determining the potential for using neurofeedback training in your treatment is to schedule an initial consultation with one of our therapists. During this 50-minute session, we will determine whether you are a viable candidate for neurofeedback therapy, if you should consider treatments other than neurofeedback, or whether a combination of treatments should be considered. During this time, you will have the opportunity to experience a demo neurofeedback session. You can ask our therapists any additional questions you may have. The fee for the initial consultation is $175 and is often reimbursed to you by insurance.

Evaluation, Testing and Brainmap
If Neurofeedback is considered appropriate for you the next step would be for you to be scheduled for an evaluation, testing and brainmap. It is desirable to complete testing without any stimulants so if you can discontinue caffeine for five (5) days prior to testing, this is optimal. If you or your child are on stimulants (such as Ritalin, Concerta, Dexadrine, or Adderal), testing can be done in the morning before the morning dose is taken. Also, please wash and dry your hair within 12 hours of the evaluation so that the electrodes will adhere properly during the brainmap. The evaluation, testing and brainmap takes 3 – 3.5 hours hrs. and must be done in the morning. The fee for this session is $600 and this is often at least partially covered by insurance.

Neurofeedback Sessions
After the evaluation, the Neurofeedback sessions can then be scheduled. They are scheduled in blocks of 20 and should be done at least twice weekly. Sessions are approximately 45 minutes long. The average number of sessions is 40-50 with some conditions responding before 40; others are more difficult and require 60 to 100. Some individuals will notice changes after just a few sessions, but in some of the more complicated cases, major benefit will not be noted until after 60 or more sessions. Please expect to undergo at least 40 sessions. Although it is likely that improvements will be noticed before 20 sessions they may not be sustained without continued sessions. Evidence shows a cumulative benefit to the number of sessions undergone. Neurofeedback sessions are $175 per session if paid after each session. If you choose to pre-pay for 20 sessions there is a 5% discount.

Quantitative EEG
If this test is recommended by our therapists, it takes two hours and costs $950. This includes two reports (one from a neurologist) and protocol recommendations. This procedure may be covered by your insurance.

Health Insurance Coverage
If you have a health benefits policy, you can explore the possibility of coverage. The insurance company may reference this as a CPT code 90901 (biofeedback by any modality) or 96152 (Health and Behavioral Intervention incorporating Biofeedback), – We can also use 90876 when appropriate. (Individual Psychophysiological Therapy incorporating biofeedback. If your insurance company will authorize training, we ask that you pay for services and apply for reimbursement. A statement will be provided for your convenience in submitting claims.
