Psychological Evaluation for Spinal Cord Stimulators

Many insurance companies require patients to undergo a brief psychiatric or psychological evaluation prior to Spinal Implant Surgery.

The Center for Cognitive Therapy and Assessment provides such assessments. A clinical psychologist on staff will conduct a 90-minute clinical interview. The cost is $200.00 which is paid up front with cash, credit or check. This practice is not on any insurance panels. However, we will provide a receipt which includes the CPT code and diagnostic code required for “out-of-network” coverage. If you are concerned about reimbursement, you may wish to call your insurance company and verify that they will accept “out of network providers” before making an appointment. We look forward to assisting you in this process.

Call 703-618-0900 or email Dr. Alicia Hodge at to schedule the evaluation.
