Getting professionally assessed and diagnosed is an important step in accessing treatment and support. But how much does an ADHD assessment cost? In this post, we’ll break down the typical pricing tiers and factors that affect costs.
The standard ADHD assessment process involves detailed interviews, symptom checklists, cognitive testing and history gathering. A comprehensive evaluation is required for an accurate diagnosis.
Typical ADHD assessment cost:
- Paediatric assessments (children age between 5 – 21) £2000 – £3000
- Adult assessments: £1500
The exact cost depends on several factors:
- Testing time and complexity – more in-depth evaluations cost more.
- Location – fees are higher in major cities.
- Insurance coverage – those with coverage pay less out-of-pocket.
Insurance for ADHD Assessment cost
Insurance coverage for ADHD assessments varies widely in the UK. Many private medical insurers provide partial coverage, but the approval process can be difficult to navigate. Kove recommends appealing rejected claims and highlighting medical necessity.
There are ways to reduce costs if paying privately. Some charitable organisations and adult education centres offer assessments on a sliding scale.
