INSURANCE COVERAGE

Dr. Neessen is a covered provider for most of the following plans:

  • Presbyterian Health Plan
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • True Health/New Mexico Health Connections

Dr. Neessen will accept payment from these insurance providers for his services when covered. The patient or patient’s parent/legal guardian(s) are responsible for determining the coverage available for their particular plan and arranging this coverage ahead of time, as needed.   The cost of health care services provided by Dr. Neessen that are not covered by insurance are the responsibility of the patient or patient’s parent/legal guardian(s).

It is important to be aware that insurance plans do not cover costs related to “educational testing”, which is any assessment of reading, writing, and math skills.   Educational testing is optional, but many families elect to self-pay for that portion so that Dr. Neessen can make the most current and relevant recommendations across all areas.  There is an out-of-pocket cost for educational testing.

Due to Medicaid/Centennial regulations, PACES New Mexico is NOT able to evaluate children with Centennial insurance coverage for evaluation of DYSLEXIA or EDUCATIONAL concerns.

To determine the extent of your insurance coverage for other aspects of testing, please contact the benefits department of your insurer directly.  Many insurance plans do not cover all costs of testing.   If they do not provide coverage, you again have the option to pay for some or all aspects of testing privately.

OUT-OF-POCKET/SELF-PAY

PACES New Mexico does not accept Cigna, TriCare, United Healthcare, Western Skies, Molina Healthcare, or Aetna Plans.

If your insurance plan does not cover the costs of testing, you may have the option to pay privately.

Some health insurance plans will reimburse the insured individual for some portion of “out-of-network” fees for neuropsychological assessment. I will provide you with a statement/receipt for out of pocket expenses paid so that you may submit a claim to your insurance company, if you choose.
