An informational note about insurance coverage. It is important to check with your insurance provider about insurance coverage for the cost of evaluations. Coverage is often contingent upon whether the testing is related to a medical or psychiatric condition. A learning disability in and of itself is not regarded as a medical or psychiatric condition. Be sure to use the proper terminology regarding the type of evaluation when talking to your insurance provider. An evaluator can advise you about the exact nature or type of evaluation being conducted. In many instances, an evaluation for a learning disability is not included in insurance coverage.
