The evaluation currently costs $500 with additional costs covered by funding from the Board of Regents. The student is asked to include a $250 deposit in the packet that is mailed to the center prior to the appointment. The balance of $250 should be paid at the first appointment. The student will not be allowed to continue her or his evaluation until payment has been received in full.
Methods of payment include:
- money order
- credit card
Financial aid--the cost of the evaluation can sometimes be included in a student's financial aid package.
Insurance--The center does not file for insurance payments, but will provide students with the necessary documentation so that they may file with their insurance carrier after they have made full payment. Students should be aware that many insurance plans will not reimburse them for this type of evaluation.
Third Party Payments (e.g., Department of Rehabilitation Services)--The client must supply the RCLD with an official letter (on letterhead), or a voucher from the third party giving promise of payment and detailed payment information.
Payment arrangements-- Alternate payment arrangements may be made in extenuating circumstances, and must be authorized by the center director. No student who is unable to pay for the evaluation will be refused services if all other payment options have been explored and their unavailability has been clearly documented by the disability service provider.
