Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Dr. Abber is a Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Provider. She also accepts private pay.
Dr. Abber is out-of-network for all other insurance plans.
If your family has an insurance plan other than BCBS, payment will be due at the time of service.
For all BCBS members, the parent intake, feedback, and consultation meetings, completed in my office, are generally covered services, along with your standard office copay.
Psychological and neuropsychological evaluations are generally covered services by most BCBS insurance plans, for evaluations that are deemed medically necessary and not exclusively for educational purposes.
Note: your plan may require prior authorization for neuropsychological or psychological testing. HMO plans routinely require prior authorization. There may also be a deductible on your plan. Please consult your insurance plan to determine prior authorization requirements as well as your deductible, if any.
The following services can be included in your child's evaluation, but are not covered by insurance and are billed separately.
* Educational/academic achievement testing, including tests of reading, writing, and mathematics.
* Classroom observations.
* Attendance at team meetings.
* Testing services or intake/feedback/consultation meetings provided in a location other than my office.
