Comprehensive Trauma Assessments
Our comprehensive assessment includes a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) screening, a neurodevelopmental assessment and a psychosocial interview with the child. The full cost of this assessment is $800.
Caregiver-child Interaction Observations
The referring person can also request a caregiver-child interaction observation as part of the assessment. This is a standardized observation utilizing the Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) in order to assess the relationship between two individuals, for example, biological parent and child, foster or adoptive parent and child, teacher and child. There is an additional cost of $300 for the caregiver-child interaction observation.
A review of the assessment report is included in your fee. If a medical consultation with Dr. Mark Sloane, CTAC’s behavioral pediatrician, is recommended or desired, straight Medicaid may cover the charge for this service. Your child’s physician must complete the medical pre-authorization form. If your child does not have straight Medicaid, the fee schedule for this service begins at $55 for the first 30-minutes and increases by each additional 15-minute increment.
For referral from DHHS, payment authorization is needed prior to scheduling. Two forms are required:
1. DHHS 93 for $700 (coded psychiatric 0031) - this covers the cost of the neurodevelopmental assessment
2. DHHS 93 for $100 (coded psychological 0034) - this covers the cost of the FASD screen
Please note that the CTAC trauma assessment is not covered by Medicaid, and we are not able to bill private insurance. If you have private insurance that covers the assessment, we can provide you with a copy of the paid invoice to submit to your insurance company.
If your child has an adoption subsidy, you should contact your worker in Lansing to see if payment of the assessment is covered. Adoption subsidy may only pay a portion of the assessment. Any remaining balance will be your responsibility.
If you are private paying, the following payment plans are available to you:
- Half of the payment ($400) paid on the day of the assessment. The remaining balance ($400) to be paid at the time the completed assessment report is provided.
- Payment in full ($800) paid on the day of the assessment.
For your convenience, we also accept MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
If you have further questions regarding billing, please contact CTAC’s main office at (269) 387-7073. We look forward to being of assistance.
