The assessment meeting contains three parts:
What should I expect with this assessment?
Our assessments are designed to be client centered, as well as a positive and affirming experience. You will be listened to, and your story will be heard and understood. By the end of your assessment, you will have a clear understanding of your diagnosis and recommendations on how to proceed.
What does this assessment test for? What does this assessment not include?
During this process, the diagnosticians are assessing for a wide range of mental health issues, including but not limited to: ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Mood disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Adjustment Disorders, and Sleep disorders*.
This specific assessment DOES NOT test for learning differences and learning disorders. This is because these require a battery of specialized testing.

These include but are not limited to dyslexia, dysgraphia, comprehension issues, conversion challenges, and more
What is included in the fee of $685?
The $685 fee includes the time spent by the diagnostician reviewing your information before and after the assessment meeting. It also includes the Qbcheck/test, a 2-hour meeting and a very in-depth written report which is provided to the client two to three weeks after the assessment meeting. Other services rendered by the ADHD Center of West Michigan are not included in this fee
Am I going to be diagnosed with ADHD?
While ADHD is a diagnosis we commonly make, there is no guarantee of a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We will take each client through the whole diagnostic process to ensure we are providing you with the most accurate information related to what you are experiencing. Regardless of the outcome of your assessment, the symptoms which lead you to meet with us will be explained to the best of our ability and a clear plan for next steps will be established.
Are these meetings in person or virtual?
Currently, adult assessments are conducted virtually. Assessments for children 12 and under are conducted in our offices in Grand Rapids, MI.
Do you accept insurance for assessments?
No, we do not accept insurance. We are a private pay organization. We do provide superbills for each assessment which can be submitted to your insurance company for out of network coverage.
What happens after my assessment?
After your assessment meeting, you will receive an in-depth written report approximately two to three weeks after your assessment. This report will contain all the information needed for you to take the next steps in receiving treatment for whatever is found in your assessment. The assessment report is designed to empower you to access the help, support and resources needed to overcome your challenges and design a life you love.
No, we do not accept insurance. We are a private pay organization. For therapy and assessment services, we can provide a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, but we can’t guarantee that the service will be covered.
What is a superbill?
A superbill is a document with a variety of information on it explaining the type of service you received and the qualifications of the clinician. Some insurance companies will cover a percentage of services received outside of their network. It is your responsibility to submit the superbill to your insurance company and we make no guarantee that any amount will be reimbursed. **ADHD coaches can not provide a superbill.
Do you have payment plans?
No, we do not currently offer payment plans.
Do I need to keep a credit card on file?
Prior to or at the first appointment, we do require you to fill out a credit card authorization form for us to keep your card on file.
ADHD coaching is not covered by insurance. However, there are alternative ways to alleviate the expense.
If you are employed, you can inquire with your Human Resources department about the possibility of them covering the cost of coaching.
Another avenue is to utilize flexible spending accounts (FSA) provided by your employer. FSAs allow you to allocate pre-tax funds for healthcare expenses that are not covered by insurance such as glasses, acupuncture, and coaching. Speak with you employer to establish a FSA account.
Additionally, you can approach your physician and request a prescription for coaching. This may enable you to deduct the cost of coaching from your taxes.
If you are self employed, you can consider deducting a portion of the ADHD coach’s fee as a business expense. This is like you would treat expenses for consultants, tax advisors, or other professionals who assist your business.
While affordability is a significant factor, it is important to consider the potential long-term financial benefits of working with an ADHD coach before dismissing the idea. Viewing ADHD coaching as a financial investment for the future is worth considering.
