Osika & Scarano Psychological Services, P.C.
For routine outpatient visits to our office, we bill your insurance. You are responsible for your copay and deductible (which varies with each plan).
If you do not have insurance, please complete the Sliding Fee Scale Packet. In addition, we work closely with a specialist from Fidelis Care, as well as an enrollment specialist from Adirondack Health Institute, who can help you find a health insurance plan that is affordable for you. We will be more than happy to make a referral for you.
If your insurance does not cover evaluations for court, probation, etc., it will be billed at $300. This includes fees for your sessions and writing of the report.
If your insurance does not cover achievement testing required to make a diagnosis of a Learning Disability, you have 3 options:
1) Call your insurance company and ask if they would agree to pay for 2 hours of achievement testing
2) Ask your child’s school to complete the achievement testing
3) Have our office complete the testing and agree to pay over a six-month period of time.
Unfortunately, most insurances do not allow providers to bill for report writing. Scoring and writing psychological reports is a daunting task and typically takes 1-3 hours of work. This, again, is billed at a rate of $60 per hour. A six-month payment plan can be agreed upon if needed. Medicaid does allow clinicians to bill for report writing.
Unless you have a specific insurance, there will be a $50 No Show or Late Cancellation Fee. We respectfully ask that you give us at least a 24-hour notice prior to cancelling your appointment. However, we understand life happens: you are sick, your car breaks down, or you got called into work. Please keep in mind that No Shows (unless you have a specific insurance) will always be billed, and frequent late cancellations will be billed.
