The program is part self-pay and part insurance-based. Some insurance plans will cover a portion of the cost of the testing, but please note that academic testing and the parent psychoeducation component are not considered medically necessary and therefore are not covered by insurance. The costs that are not covered by insurance are $2,000.

More information on insurance providers accepted by McLean Hospital may be found on the Partners HealthCare website. You may also find it beneficial to review McLean’s financial assistance policy.
